Mabirizi wants his alleged father’s body exhumed for DNA test


The alleged Will Following Mutumba’s death, one of his widows, Hajjat Sarah Kizza, said she retrieved the questioned Will in one of the envelopes found in his office on Buganda Road in Kampala. [KS]

In the said Will, Mabirizi is not mentioned at all. Mabirizi has since contested the validity of the Will classifying it as a forgery. In the contested Will, Pastor Male was denied a benefit on grounds that he denounced the Islamic religion, but his children are given a share on the estate of their grandfather comprising plot 1049, block 19 at Nateete in Kampala.  

Court documents indicate that following the death of Mutumba, Mabirizi received no share out of his presumed father’s estate prompting him to challenge the validity of the Will. Contestation On April 24, this year, Mengo court grade one magistrate Joanita Muwanika declared the distribution of the property which was done during the funeral rites of late Mutumba null and void for being contrary to the doctrine of equity. 

Based on the ruling by the Chief Magistrates Court in Mengo, Mabirizi filed an application in Mukono seeking an exhumation order for the remains of the late Mutumba to be used to make a DNA test against all his siblings to ascertain their relationship with him. However, the court instead ordered all the presumed children of the late Mutumba to undergo a DNA test to establish whether they belong to the same father or not. Born in 1987, Mabirizi came into the limelight when he sued the Kabaka over the operations of the Buganda Land Board. 

At 16 years, Mabirizi sued his father for negligence and neglect of his fatherly duties. Consequently, he was summoned by the court after which he agreed to pay the fees. He would later graduate with a bachelor’s degree in law from Makerere University.
