of Mohamed Bazinduse Lulibedda Mutumba who was buried on 21st June 2021 at Kasana Village, Ndese Township/ Parish, Seeta-Namuganga Sub county, Mukono District.
In this Mabirizi was seeking court to order for a DNA test to be carried on the remains of the deceased , Mabirizi and other children to establish the real children of Bazinduse
The respondents in their response told court that the late Mohamed Bazinduse Lulibedda Mutumba left a will that the applicant claims to have challenged but There is however no proof of such challenge that was brought before Court
They therefore added that having not mentioned the applicant as one of his children, it is thus the duty of court to determine whether the fact warrants the exhumation of the deceased and having a DNA test carried out to prove paternity of the children or not.
