Drama as man runs to court after being booted out of WhatsApp group


A court in Uganda’s Makindye division has ordered the administrator of a WhatsApp group to reinstate a member who was ejected from the group.

According to the Daily Monitor, Herbert Baitwababo challenged his removal from the ‘Buyanja My Roots’ WhatsApp group by its administrator, Allan Asinguza, in court. Baitwababo argued that the group was formed to contribute to charitable works, offer condolences and support to people in the area, and each member was required to pay a membership fee of Sh.30,000.

When Baitwababo asked Asinguza about the process for managing the group’s affairs and accountability for funds collected since 2017, he was removed from the group.

The court ruled that Baitwababo’s removal infringed on his right and freedom of association and ordered the administrator to reinstate him and issued a permanent injunction against further infringements.
