Can your Relatives use a Letter to Prevent you from Working in Government?
/

In today’s episode, we discuss whether your relatives can use a letter to prevent you from working in government, similar to the recent story of Philip Murgor, an advocate, who was vying for the position of Chief Justice. We are joined by Guest Advocate and Legal Researcher at Swala Nyeti, Joy Mutimba-Vetil who specialises in Commercial Conveyancing and Corporate Law.

A letter is doing rounds on social media written by Philip Murgor’s family to the Judicial Service Commission expressing his unsuitability as the next Chief Justice.

The letter accuses him of pitting family members against each other by representing one side against the other in succession disputes; as well as being verbally abusive to his wife.
