Contraversial city lawyer Male Mabirizi who cut his teeth in the legal profession by becoming a serial litigant, taking on the mighty in this country.
Mabirizi sued president Tibuhaburwa in East Africa accusing him of facilitating the removal of age limit from the Ugandan constitution in 2017.
Filing a case in the Eas’s High Court followed his earlier case which the High Court of Uganda cleared president Tibuhaburwa
Male Mabirizi was sent to Kitalya Prison following his arrest on Monday from Kyambogo University Banda gate.
Recently, Justice Musa Ssekaana ordered for his arrest on sight as he was on the run to evade serving 18 months at Kitalya for contempt of court.
Kampala Metropolitan Police Deputy Spokesperson, Luke Owoyesigire confirmed that Mabirizi was picked on the basis of the Warrant of arrest issued by court. He was temporarily detained at Jinja Road Police station before being transfered to Kitalya Prison at around 7:30 pm.
“The arrest warrant issued by the High Court against Mabirizi directed any police officer to arrest him and deliver him to the prison mentioned in the committal warrant with immediate effect,” said Owoyesigire.
Prisons spokesperson, Frank Baine also confirmed that Mabirizi is at their facility.
Before Mabirizi was arrested, he challenged the orders by Justice Ssekaana labeling them illegal. The lawyer argued that no man can be a judge in his own cause.
He consequently ran to the Court of Appeal to challenge all orders including one of fining him Shs 300 million and the 18-month prison sentence.
Mabirizi is a cantercarous who courts contraversy even under circumstances one would least expect him to poke his noise.
Mabirizi, before meeting his fate of jail had sued a prominent city Pastor Bugingo on behalf of the estranged pastor’s wife Teddy Naluswa Bugingo.
In what many have come to term as “perfect prophesy”, or curses, pastor Bugingo warned Mabirizi of dire consequences which would overwhelm him for meddling into his domestic affairs that don’t concern him!
