The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga yesterday informed Parliament that she had received a letter from lawyers representing Theodore Ssekikubo, Wilfred Niwagaba, Muhamed Nsereko and Barnabas Tinkasiimire in which they forwarded to her office a ruling in Constitutional Application No. 04 of 2014.
