High Court in Jinja has issued an interim order stopping the eviction of Jinja Resident District Commissioner, Eric Sakwa from office.

Sakwa was a few weeks ago interdicted and ordered to hand over office to allow proper investigations into manslaughter charges against him before the Jinja court.

He later ran to court to stop the eviction.

On Wednesday, the court’s deputy registrar ordered that Sakwa should stay in office until the determination of the main case in which he is challenging his interdiction.

“An interim order is hereby issued restraining the respondents and their agents from evicting or removing the applicant from his office of RDC Jinja district or from any way interfering with his job,work and function as RDC or from and his emoluments accruing to his office as RDC pending the final disposal of the application for a temporary injunction,” the interim order by Fred Waninda the Jinja High Court deputy registrar.

The court ordered that on top of continuing with his duties as the Jinja RDC, Sakwa should continue getting his due salary until the case in which he challenges the interdiction is disposed of by the same.
