The High Court sitting in Kampala has imposed a temporary injunction halting the removal of Dr. Samuel Oledo as the President of the Uganda Medical Association.
The temporary injunction was issued by the High court Judge, Musa Ssekaana, yesterday, 19th December, 2022.
The injunction however has come after Members of the Uganda Medical Association voted to suspend Dr. Samuel Oledo from membership of U.M.A for the next 4 years and ultimately from being its chairperson on Sunday, 18th December, 2022.
The vote was carried out in an Extraordinary General Assembly despite Dr. Oledo’s petition in the High Court challenging the Association’s move.
Dr. Oledo was replaced by Dr. Edith Nakku Joloba as the new President for the remaining term of office.
According to Dr. Herbert Luswata, UMA Secretary-General, Members decided that the former UMA President Samuel Oledo got a vote of no confidence because of what happened in Kololo.
Dr. Oledo together with a group of others donning clinical coats had been attending an NRM Youth symposium in Kololo when they knelt before President Museveni and said the doctors of Uganda are asking him to stand for the presidency again, a position which was never endorsed by the members.
