How has it reached to this? People Power fanatic Hillary Innocent Taylor Seguya (@HillaryTaylorVI on twitter) has dragged President Yoweri Museveni, government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo and the Police Director of Political Commissariat, Asan Kasingye to High Court in Kampala for blocking him on twitter.
In his suit submitted by his city lawyer Male Mabirizi today morning, Hillary wants a declaration that the decision by the trio to block him from accessing their Twitter accounts infringes on his right against discrimination guaranteed under the Constitution.
He says they (Museveni, Opondo and Kasingye) occupy public offices which necessitates them to reply to public feedback instead of blocking individuals.
“As a Ugandan citizen living abroad, I am only capable of getting information relating to this country’s governance and to communicate to the respective officers including the President through their respective Twitter handles,” Seguya said in his suit.
According to Seguya, he was on July 30, 2019, blocked by President Museveni from following, viewing, contacting, replying, liking, tagging and retweeting the tweets on his handle without notice and/or affording the applicant a hearing. Opondo is said to have blocked Seguya on August 8 while Kasingye blocked him on July 20.
Seguya wants the trio to pay costs of the suit and general damages to him for the inconveniences allegedly caused to him.
