Counsel Severino Twinobusingye, a celebrated city lawyer has threatened to sue former New Vision boss Robert Kabushenga over his recent rants on social media about a coffee deal.

Kabushenga recently took to his X handle and published what he called a Coffee Scam Disclosure where he pinned a certain city hunk (names withheld) on having fleeced billions in this alleged scam done at State House.

However, his words have landed him in trouble if what we got from court ever materializes.

Through his lawyers Messrs Mugisha & Co. Advocates, Counsel Severino Twinobusingye has dragged Kabushenga alongside the Artonney General to the Constitutional Court moving under Articles 2(1)(2), 137, 40(2) and 43(1) of the constitution as amended. He also cites Rule 5(1)(d) and 7 of the Judicature among other legal instruments.

The petition filed on February 19 2024 shows that Severino Twinobusingye who’s described as an ardent believer in rule of law and constitutionalism is pursuing Kabushenga and AG in public interest.

“Take notice that Severino Twinobusingye has filed a petition against you in court. Should you fail to file the answer on or before the above date, the petitioner will proceed with the petition which may be determined in your absence” says the court registrar in his letter to Kabushenga.

It should be recalled that Severino Twinobusingye is the man who challenged Parliament’s resolutions demanding ministers to step aside after having been cited in oil bribes scandal. The ministers included former Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi, former foreign affairs minister Sam Kahamba Kutesa and former energy minister Eng. Hillary Obalker Onek. The resolution was passed in 2013 in a heated house chaired by former speaker Rebecca Kadaga.

However, Severino Twinobusingye who was an aide to Mbabazi at the time, rushed to court challenging Parliament’s decision. In a landmark ruling, the constitutional court chaired by Justice Steven Kavuma faulted parliament for overstepping it’s mandate and issued a permanent injunction against it not to ever pass such a resolution. Severino Twinobusingye was also awarded the biggest ever court award worth Shs11.8bn payable by parliament. He’s now back to court with a bang against Kabushenga and AG as respondents.
