ACTIVISTS CHALLENGE THE LEGALITY OF NATIONAL IDS IN COURT.

.

By Kabuye Ronald
High court civil division assist registrar Alex Ajiji has set tomorrow Tuesday the 9th May 2017 as the day when court will hear the application filed against the Uganda Communication Commission UCC and  National Identification Registration Aauthority NIRA by the jobless brother pressure group led by its national coordinator Norman Tumuhimbise Liberty seeking an injunction halting the ongoing national ID registration with the LC one recommendation letter as a must prerequisite yet LC 1 and 2 are nonexistent by law.
Tumuhimbise wants court to also issue an order recalling all IDs that have been so issued by NIRA since they were  illegally issued.
He wonders why NIRA pretends to be ignorant of the fact that lc one and two are nonexistent yet there is a ruling to that effect in the high Court of Uganda which he says has also misguided UCC to the extent of issuing a directive that all telecommunication sim card owners must use national identification cards to register their cards which were illegally acquired from NIRA.
It’s on the above note that Tumimbise  wants court to allow Ugandans use LC3 letters instead of lc1and 2 since it’s the one recognised by law in both registration for the national ID and in sim card registration.
In case this application succeeds tumuhimbise wants the two parties to meet all his costs.
