The Land Division of the High Court in Kampala has given Isaac Sempala temporary relief after deputy registrar Flavia Nabakooza ruled that he would keep possession of Buziga house until a ruling on the main case involving his wife Nabilah Naggayi and Prof Baryamureeba.
On March 12, Nabilah had moved to evict her husband Sempala from their home in Buziga to recover Prof Baryamureeba’s Shs800m.
Nabilah had secured help of police officers who drove four pickups to Buziga’s Katuso Close to evict Sempala.
She was riding on a court order Makindye Chief Magistrates’ Court Grade One Magistrate Lorna Tukundane had issued to Sempala to stay away from the Buziga house.
The property Nabilah and Baryamureeba are eyeing is comprised in LVR 4004 Folio 8 Kyadondo Block 273 Plot 5 Katuso Close at Buziga in Kampala.
But while Nabilah was close to evicting the father of her four children, another court order saved Sempala.
On March 12, deputy High Court registrar Flavia Nabakooza issued an exparte interim order “restraining the respondents [Baryamureeba and Nabilah], their servants, agents and persons claiming under them from entering the suit land, evicting the applicant [Isaac Sempala Sebagala] or his agents, selling the suit land, transferring the same into their names or from doing any act on the suit land injurious to the rights of the applicant.”
This order expireed on March 17 at 2:30pm.
Shortly, Nabakooza ruled that Sempala can continue to have ownership of the Buziga house until the Commercial Division of the High Court has disposed of the main case.
She also ruled that all the disputes involving Baryamureeba, Nabilah and Sempala regarding the main case be referred to the Commercial Division.
Baryamureeba and Nabilah can now only hope for a speedy determination of the case.
Nabilah was absent in court but Baryamureeba had attended the ruling session.
