Ssemakadde suspends campaigns for Law Society Presidency

According to Ssemakadde, LDC should be disbanded—without further delay—and a more progressive system established in its place

KAMPALA, UGANDA: With barely a week after publicly declaring his intentions to run for president of the Uganda Law Society, City Lawyer Isaac Ssemakadde has suspended his campaigns for the position henceforth.

This website last week broke a story in which the Ssemakadde was nominated as a presidential candidate for the ULS Executive Committee ahead of the upcoming elections.

However, barely a week later, the celebrated Rights Lawyer says after thorough consultation and evaluation of the processes involved in becoming the President of the Law Society, he has decided to have his campaign dubbed “Go Rogue” suspended until further notice.

As much as he hopped to bring sanity and the anti-clockwise thinking to the ULS, Ssemakadde says he cannot take on the Presidency pursuit as it would require him to join the governing body of the ‘rotten’ Law Development Center if he were to win the race.

“A group of comrades has approached me with a vital concern. They have pointed out to me that if I were to win the race and become president of the ULS, I would automatically have to join the governing body of the Law Development Centre (LDC), against which I have declared a just war,” he told this website on Sunday afternoon.

According to Ssemakadde, he cannot be part of the decayed LDC governing body which he is fighting for it’s continued extortion and oppression of bar course students for the many years of it’s establishment.

“I have deeply considered the argument of these comrades, and I agree with their counsel that I should suspend my campaign for the ULS presidency this year. At the very least, I must first complete the inaugural stage of the mission to abolish LDC,” he added.

“The next steps of this very pursuit shall be communicated very soon,” he concluded.
