THE Inspector General of Government (IGG) has failed in his request to cross-examine the State Attorney who questioned his legal status to join the Kakooza Mutale reinstatement appeal, reports.
Jude Etyang reports that the Director of Legal Affairs, Elizabeth Musoke, yesterday told the High Court that Sam Sserwanga should be summoned over his affidavit that the IGG had no corporate personality to sue or be sued.
He said the cross-examination was intended to challenge Sserwangaâ€™s affidavit and have it struck out of the court record.
The affidavit was in support of the Attorney Generalâ€™s submission that the IGG could not be added into the appeal because he lacked the capacity to sue or be sued.
The cross-examination is part of the IGG application to be joined in the appeal as the second respondent with the Attorney General.
Justice Yorakamu Bamwine said the issue had to be one of the grounds in the main case.
â€œWe should avoid those sub rulings. Some of them are unnecessary and they waste a lot of time,â€ Bamwine said.
