Kampala: One of President Yoweri Museveni’s lawyers handling the election petition Hussein Kashillingi has confirmed that National Unity Platform’s president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine will be billed in billions of shillings for withdrawing the election petition.
“We are warming up for the costs, and they are in billions. We will be putting in our bill,” Kashillingi revealed.
Kashillingi made the comments while appearing on NBS TV’s Morning Breeze on Tuesday morning just hours after Bobi Wine announced that he had instructed his lawyers to withdraw the petition from the supreme court.
Bobi Wine on Monday announced that he had instructed his lawyers to file an application to withdraw the petition from the supreme court.
“Owiny-Dollo’s court does not look like an institution that will give Ugandans justice,” Bobi Wine told his supporters on Monday.
Bobi Wine further noted that the Supreme Court judges are biased with a pre-determined mind and therefore they will not continue with such a ‘mockery’ of the judiciary.
However, Museveni’s lawyer Kashillingi has trashed Bobi Wine’s allegations saying that they are baseless and he has no evidence to back them up thus terming them as just ‘drama’.
“President Museveni won the election on January 14th. This drama has to end, even series come to an end. Hon. Kyagulanyi’s drama has to come to an end, the country has to move on,” Kashilingi said.
Kyagulanyi said that he will now take his case to the public court, but Kashillingi maintained that the public decided already and that was on January 14th, 2021, by going to the polls where President Museveni emerged winner, according to the results that were announced by Electoral Commission.
“They said that President Museveni should lead us for the next five years,when you go to court, you expect to win or lose. There is no draw, the courts don’t become biased because Kyagulanyi says so,” Kashilingi added.
