WAREHOUSING& FORWARDING CO. OF UGANDA LTD….APPELLANT
SADAR MOHAMED&CO LTD…………………………………..RESPONDENT
[Appeal from an order of the high court of Uganda at Kampala (Jones, J )dated 19th October, 1970]
21ST September, 1972
JUDGMENT OF COURT
The appeal was filed 7 days out of time. No application has been made for an extension of time, although the defect was pointed out to appellants on 10th June, 1971. There is accordingly no competent appeal before this Court, and we have no option but to strike out the appeal as incompetent, with costs, and we order accordingly.
The objections that the notice of appeal and the record of appeal were not served in accordance with the rules of this Court are conceded by the advocate for the respondent but we need not further deal with these objections nor with the further objection that leave to appeal was not obtained.
