MTN Uganda had lodged a formal complaint with the Judicial Service Commission in Uganda against Sylvia Nabagala, the chief magistrate of the Buganda Road Magistrate's Court, the company said yesterday.

Nabagala is accused of unprofessional conduct and contradictory rulings and “disregard of due process” after she issued summons for the firm's directors and executives to take a plea, yet the court records had no formal charges and the summons was not reflected in the court record. - Asha Speckman
