Bobi Wine Withdraws Election Petition Challenging Museveni Victory


Kampala – The National Unity Platform President Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has formally withdraw petition case filed with the Supreme Court.

Bobi Wine has over time accused the court of being partisan and unclear for allegedly frustrating this case in which he sought to challenge the outcome of the January 14 Presidential elections.

He had asked up to three judges on the court bench including Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny Dollo to recuse themselves from his case on grounds that they are biased against him.

This comes barely a week since a forensics report indicated that Bobi Wine’s affidavits filed for the petition were fake and ‘cooked’

A forensic document examiner, a one, Sylvia Chelangat, testified on February 17 that some of the affidavits filed by petition (Bobi Wine) bore fake signature – citing irregularities in loops and strokes.

Chelangat stated that upon receipt of the request, the forensics Document Examiner proceeds to National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) to extract the enrolment documents of the persons named in the attachment to the Solicitor General.
