The magistrate that summoned Gen Kale Kayihura to the Makindye has died.
The shocking news has shocked Lord Mayor Erias Lukwago who was one of the laywers who was almost lynched in court by goons on the day the police chief was expected in court although he didn’t turn up.
Lukwago said, “Have just received shocking and disheartening news that the Chief Magistrate of Makindye Court, His Worship Richard Mafabi (on phone in the picture) has collapsed and died instantly. He will go down in the annals of history as one of the few judicial officers who held onto the judicial oath to uphold the law without fear or favour at a very challenging moment. In a country where impunity reigns supreme, it was unforeseeable that he would issue criminal summons and sign a chargesheet against General Kale Kayihura and 8 other senior police officers for acts of torture. I vividly recall the day we were held hostage and nearly lynched in his chambers by some state sponsored goons but he never abdicated his constitutional duty. May His Soul Rest in Eternal Peace.”
