Kampala: Finally the Supreme Court in Kampala has given green lights to the National Unity Platform former presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi, also popularly known as Bobi Wine after allowing him to withdraw the petition he had filed challenging the 2021 elections against President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni.
This has been reached on after Kyagulanyi convinced court that he was not bribed to withdraw the case citing that court has not put in place grounds favorable for his petition to succeed hence wastage of time to resume with the case.
Finally, today Friday, after listening from lawyers from both sides, the panel of nine justices accepted that it was right for the petition to be withdrawn.
“Considering that the respondents had no objection to the application for withdrawal, leave is hereby granted to the petitioner as prayed. The petition stands withdrawn,” Justice Stella Amoko Arach read the ruling on behalf of the other justices of the Supreme Court.
The justices however noted that would give the reasons and detailed ruling on notice.
“The reasons and determination of costs shall be contained in ruling to be delivered on notice. This ruling is signed by all members of the quorum.”
The development means that President Museveni’s January 14 election stands unchallenged and he is now the duly elected president of Uganda and awaits swearing-in slated for May.
