Hearing of a case in which Lwemiyaga county MP Theodore Sekikubo is suing the Law Development center(LDC) for excluding him from the concluded April graduation has been referred for mediation.
The case had come up today for Hearing, however high court Justice Henerrieta Wolayo instead ordered both parties to use the mediation process to reach a peaceful out of court settlement and also saves courts time from a possible long public case hearing.
However Justice Wolayo has not appointed a mediation Judge on grounds that she will need the LDC to first present documents from the director of LDC and the marking guidelines they used for the 26th April graduates by this coming Monday.
In his application Ssekikubo wants court to rule that LDC erred by not allowing him to graduate and also wants court to order LDC to give him his transcript.
On the 26th of April, Deputy Registrar in- charge of civil matters Sarah Langa oked the graduation ceremony to take place in which over 1302 students were awarded their law practicing certificates, dismissing Ssekikubo’s application for an injunction.
While dismissing the application the Deputy registrar ruled that it would not be fair to stop the graduation ceremony because it would mean that court endorsed an illegality by ordering that Sekikuubo is included on the graduation list yet he failed an exam adding that two wrongs do not make a right.
She there for advised Ssekikubo to pursue his main case and table evidence before court to prove that the 1302 graduation list contained students who failed just like him.
He contends that even though he failed one paper ; corporate and Financial practice in which he scored 37%, it’s discriminatory for the LDC Management committee to allow other 201 to graduate and leave him out without a justifiable reason .
The case been adjourned to the 3rd of July 2018.
