City lawyer Mabirizi has asked to be availed with a copy of President Museveni’s driving permit.
In a letter dated January, 24, 2022, the controversial lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi asked the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Works and Transport to provide him with a copy of president Museveni’s valid driving licence.
Mabirizi argues that if Museveni has a valid driving licence, he has committed a crime under section 58 (1) of the Traffic and Road Safety Act which states that a person disqualified from getting a driving permit and is found with one commits an offence.
And if he has no licence, then he committed an offence contrary to section 35(1) of the Traffic and Road Safety Act which states that a person shall not drive any class of motor vehicle unless he or she is in possession of a copy of valid driving licence in respect of that vehicle punishable by six months imprisonment.
Mabirizi has given the ministry of works 21 days to respond to this request.
