The Attorney General, Peter Nyombi has appealed against the recent ruling by the Constitutional Court that stopped the re-appointment of Benjamin Odoki as Chief Justice.
Early this week, four judges of the Constitutional Court ruled against the re-appointment of Benjamin Okodi as Chief Justice.
Judge Lillian Tibatemwa, Solomy Balangi Bbosa and Eldad Mwanguhya ruled that President Yoweri Museveni was wrong to reappoint former Chief Justice Benjamin Odoki saying it was unconstitutional.
However, Justice Ruby Aweri disagreed with the ruling, saying President Museveni was right to reappoint Odoki.
The Western Youth Member of Parliament, Gerald Karuhanga petitioned the constitutional court to challenge the appointment of Benjamin Odoki as the chief justice of Uganda citing that he had attained 70 years of age and was unqualified for the job.
