Bobi Wine withdraws election petition

Read Time:1 Minute, 37 Second

National Unity Platform (NUP) President Robert Kyagulanyi has withdrawn the election petition seeking to overturn presidential results.

Earlier, he had warned that failure by Judiciary to receive his evidence, would force him to withdraw the petition.

He promised to take the matter before the public court.

“We have decided to withdraw our petition from their court and we are back to the public court,” he said Monday while announcing the withdrawal of petition from Supreme Court to press at Kamwokya NUP offices.

Bobi Wine said he will release the evidence to the public for everyone to see.

Last Friday, Supreme Court rejected an application by NUP lawyers to file additional 200 affidavits in support of his petition against the January 14 victory by the incumbent.

The affidavits were attached with evidential documents, audio and videos.

The rejected documents included affidavits by NUP party lawyer Benjamin Katana and party secretary general David Lewis Rubongoya, Mukono Municipality MP Betty Nambooze, and other sworn statements by jailed singer Ali Bukeni, aka Nubian Li, and veteran journalist Kalundi Serumaga.

On February 11, the court directed Kyagulanyi’s lawyers to file their additional affidavits and evidence by February 14 but the time was overshot.

In a majority decision of 8-1 read by Justice Night Percy Tuhaise, the Supreme Court – which is the court of first instance for presidential petitions and also the final court – disallowed Kyagulanyi’s application in which he had sought to be allowed extra time to file additional affidavits.

At a press conference, Bobi Wine said if Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo and two other Justices of the Supreme Court do not recuse themselves from hearing the matter, he would withdraw.

In response, Dollo told Bobi Wine to go ahead with his Plan B instead of disorganising court.

He also warned the politician against threats saying neither intimidation nor blackmail would make court rule in his favour.
