UgandanCourt Stops Demolition of Condemned Buildings

By Julius Ocungi

Gulu — The High Court in Gulu has issued an interim order restraining Gulu Municipality leaders from demolishing structures condemned as unfit for human habitation within the four divisions of Bardege, Layibi, Pece and Laroo.

This follows an appeal filed in court last month by five landlords under their umbrella body, Association of Property Owners, through their lawyers Barenzi & Co advocates seeking for more time before their structures are demolished.

The interim order, issued by the Assistant Registrar of Gulu High Court, Mr Henry Twinomuhwezi, on Thursday, restrains Gulu Municipality leaders from carrying out any demolition exercise until May 2.
