Retired Supreme Court Judgez Justice George Wilson Nattubu Tsekooko has died.
Justice Nattubu Teskooko passed away at Norvik Hospital in Kampala.
Judiciary spokesperson Solomon Muyita said he had been admitted for several weeks.
“The funeral arrangements shall be communicated later May His Soul Rest In Peace,” a statement from Judiciary reads.
Tsekooko was one of the judges particularly remembered for twice ruling against President Yoweri Museveni in 2001 and 2006 presidential election petitions filed by Dr. Kizza Besigye.
Tsekooko also represented Obote against Museveni in 1980 after Museveni sued the UPC presidential flag bearer for making defamatory statements against him while campaigning in Ankole.
The case, however never took off because Obote became president thereafter and thus immune to a court suit.
