The Attorney General, Peter Nyombi is suspended from the Uganda Law Society.
The suspension of Peter Nyombi followed a petition filed by a group of lawyers headed by Jude Mbabaali, who accused him of exhibiting irresponsible behavior in his actions as Attorney General, through misadvising the President on the reappointment of Benjamin Odoki as Chief Justice, and the appointment of Internal Affairs minister, Gen. Aronda Nyakairima.
During an extraordinary meeting held on Thursday ,the decision to suspend Nyombi was thus unanimously agreed upon by the lawyers .
ULS Secretary General, Nicholas Opiyo says the members also agreed to issue Nyombi with a certificate of incompetence to show displeasure and referral to the Law Council for disciplinary action against him.
