Mabirizi sues Museveni for abandoning Tibuhaburwa name.

Male Mabirizi has dragged President Yoweri Museveni to court for abandoning his new name, Tibuhaburwa that he formally adopted in 2020.

On October 6, 2020, Museveni swore a declaration to rectify his names and have them written in proper order in accordance with the law on the registration of names.

Whisper Eye has learnt that on Tuesday, lawyer Mabirizi ran to the Civil Division of the High Court in Kampala arguing that the president has continued to use Yoweri Kaguta Museveni instead of the new name of Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Kaguta Museveni on all formal documents which he says is illegal.

According to the lawyer, Museveni was nominated by the Electoral Commission to stand for presidency that he won under the new name, adding that it is wrong to continue carrying out state duties using the old and abandoned name.
