Abstract

The original title I was given for my presentation was “Free at Last: A Critique of the High Court decision in the case of Sulaiman Kakaire v. The Parliamentary Commission.” I usually don’t like to use titles which are chosen for me by others. But who can resist such an iconic title as ‘Free at Last!’ which is taken from Martin Luther King, Jr.’s 1963 “I Have a Dream” speech?1 So I’ve retained the old title, especially since the new one that is given on the program for the day is rather bland.
