The Judiciary has suspended the burial programme of the late Lady Justice Stella Arach-Amoko.
According to a memo from the Chief Registrar, Sarah Langa, the burial that had been scheduled for tomorrow has now been postponed due to factors beyond their control.
This comes as uncertainty looms large on where and when the remains of the former Supreme Court Judge will be buried, following the eruption of a dispute among family members about the right burial place.
The children and relatives of the deceased posthumously cite her royal heritage and declaration before death that she wanted her final resting place to be on Jukia Hill in Nebbi Town, contrary to official plans to bury her at her husband, Ambassador James Amoko’s home in Ajumani.
The feuding sides were last night locked up in a heated meeting chaired by Anitah Among, the Speaker of Parliament, where the late Arach’s body remained after lying in state in the day.
Three biological children of the late judge have now petitioned the High Court Family Division seeking to have their mother buried at her ancestral home in Nebbi near their grandfather.
Justice Arach-Amoko died on Saturday at Nakasero hospital in Kampala and was due to be buried tomorrow.
