Chief Justice Katureeba had the chance of changing the landscape following the disputed Presidential election. He should have cancelled the results and ordered for a new election.
If the Judges of Uganda's Supreme Court had been serious about seeing sanity return to Uganda, they would have saved the country what it is going through now. The Hon. Amama Mbabazi Petition may have had its shortcomings but facts on ground were such that the Presidential Election results should have been nullified and the court would have come up with new guidelines to be followed as well as a appeal for funding by the international community. If President Museveni had won, the position would still come out the same but with the needed transparency.
Museveni is running Uganda as a military man and as such one has to be very careful of the decision he takes or else ...
Hon. Maama Mbabazi's petition had offered Uganda an opportunity to have the Presidential election done again but the Supreme court judges let the country down.
If the election had been done again under the Supreme court terms, maybe the situation in the country would be normal now.
Ever since the Presidential elections, the country has failed to get back to a situation where it is not necessary to deploy police and the army, which portrays that things are not normal.
The Religious Leaders have not been able to make positive intervention in the stand off.
Uganda has the problem of being a military leadership disguised as a democracy. This may have limited the Judges from taking the better approach for the country.
