HOT: Ugandan judge, Julia Sebutinde, voted against Humanitarian Aid and provisional measures being sent to people of Gaza

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Ugandan judge, Julia Sebutinde, voted against Humanitarian Aid and provisional measures being sent to people of Gaza.

South Africa, dragged Israel to the Hague-based ICJ on Dec. 29 on charges of genocide against Palestinians.

On Friday, the ICJ found South Africa's claim that Israel is committing genocide plausible. The court issued an interim order urging Israel to stop obstructing aid deliveries into Gaza and improve the humanitarian situation.

Sebutinde voted against all six measures of the ICJ. She is now facing the wrath of the world for her vote with several social media users saying that Ugandans should be embarrassed.

“Judge Julia Sebutinde is such an embarrassment to her country & a disgrace to humanity. She didn't just vote against S. Africa's petition, she voted against reason & morality, justice & freedom, love & compassion. She voted against the very soul of humanity,” one Kenyan user wrote on X.

A British-trained Ugandan judge, Sebutinde is the first African woman to serve on the International Court of Justice. 

She is in her second term after being re-elected in 2021 and has been a member of the court since 2012.

She also served as a Judge of the Special Court for Sierra Leone from 2005 to 2011, where she presided over several high-profile war crimes and corruption prosecutions.

In a post on X (formerly Twitter), Adonia Ayebare, who is the Ambassador and Permanent Representative of Uganda to the United Nations, said, "Justice Sebutinde's ruling at the International Court of Justice does not represent the Government of Uganda's position on the situation in Palestine."

Ayebare also gave an example of when Sebutinde went against Uganda.

"She has previously voted against Uganda's case on the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC)," he said.
