UMA members insist Dr Oledo is not their leader
By AFAYO SHADRACH BETHEL
The Uganda Medical Association has insisted that Dr Samuel Oledo is not their president and accused him of misinterpreting a recent court ruling over the matter.
Through their lawyers of Gem Advocates, UMA said their vice president, Dr Edith Nakku Joloba, is their acting president.
Last month, Justice Musa Ssekaana issued a temporary injunction against the ejection of Dr Oledo as UMA president.
However, in a January 5 letter addressed to Dr Oledo’s lawyers of Uniqus Advocates, UMA warned that reinstating himself as the association president is illegal, irregular and an abuse of the court process for which they will challenge.
UMA lawyers further noted that in obedience to the court order, Dr Joloba will not implement the resolution of December 6 and thus it is clear that court neither ordered the reinstatement of Dr Oledo nor did it nullify the appointment of Dr Joloba as acting president.
The letter further noted that the reinstatement of Dr Oledo would have been based on the application for mandatory injunction and not a temporary injunctive order.
