The High Court, Civil division registrar Festo Nsenga issued the directive following a successful application filed by the human rights lawyer, Ladislus Rwakafuuzi.

Nsenga summoned the duo to file their defence before the hearing date is fixed.
“You are hereby required to file a defence within 15 days from the date of service of the summons on you”.
