By Fridah Nkibugah
Three Tanzanian nationals have moved to the East African Court of Justice (EACJ) to block Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda from holding meetings that exclude Tanzania.
The three Ally Hatibu Msanga, David Geofrey Makatha and John Adam Bwenda all of Arusha Tanzania went to court seeking the Ex-parte orders against the Secretary General of the East African Community, the Republics of Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda from holding meetings in exclusion of Tanzania and Burundi pending the hearing and determination of the main case.
They are also asking the Court to restrain the respondents from implenting resolutions arrived at in their meetings of June 24, 2013 in Entebbe Uganda, August 28, 2013 in Mombasa, Kenya and October 28, 2013 in Kigali, Rwanda, pending the hearing and determination of the application of inter parties.
However, the court found that the applicants had provided insufficient material for the Court to make a decision and therefore adjourned the matter to be heard in February 2014 after filing more documents and serving all the Respondents in the matter and ready for the inter-partes hearing.
