Dr. James Rwanyarare has dragged the Uganda Peoples Congress (UPC) back to court challenging the legality of the party's leadership. Rwanyarare said yesterday that the just concluded UPC delegates conference, which elected the new leadership, was held unconstitutionally. Cue in: "The national council had determined... Cu out#that we don't agree with what happened." High court judge, Justice Remmy Kasule last week ordered the National Council of UPC to resolve the disputes between Rwanyarare and the constitutional steering committee under Badru Wegulo. Rwanyarare walked out of the Saturday meeting arguing that his personal interests had not been addressed by the meeting. The high court has fixed Friday December 2 as hearing date for the case. Meanwhile Rwanyarare has said it will not be easy for members of the UPC to expel him. Cue in: "The process of expelling... Cue out#got to follow the law." This comes after the newly elected UPC President, Miria Obite formed a committee to deal with undisciplined members of the party which would include expulsion. Rwanyarare is one of the members listed to face disciplinary action.
