British national battles Ugandan wife after he sells U.K. property, invests heavily in Uganda: Immigration named in deportation saga

The High Court Civil Division in Kampala has before its desks a case involving a British national and his Ugandan wife.

Jeremy Sage Wallington, 80, a British national, has been married to Catherine Sage Balimunsi for 20 years.

Court documents seen by this publication indicate that at the prime of the couple’s relationship, Wallington sold his home in England and invested the money in several properties and investments, including their marital home in Uganda. To his shock, however, Balimunsi applied for the cancellation of his visa “without reasonable justification, but with the intention of having the Applicant (Wallington) deported and depriving him of his property in Uganda.”

Wallington now states that he is unfairly being targeted for deportation by the Directorate of Citizenship and Immigration Control (DCIC), Ministry of Internal Affairs of Uganda. 

The Attorney General and the DCIC (Responents), however, oppose the Application, stating that the Application is incompetent, frivous, misonceived and an abuse of the court process.

DCIC, in particular, states that the Applicant was issued with a special pass for three months on August 2022 and was advised to apply any other convenient facility upon expiry of the special pass, which he has not done. The Respondents claim that there is no prima facie-case with a trialable issue that has been demonstrated by the Applicant for the grant of a temporary injunction.

Wallington’s lawyer, Andrew Lubogo of Rwabogo & Co. Advocates, argues that the actions of the Attorney General and DCIC are illegal and wants an injunction.
