NUP petition withdraw hearing adjourned on technical grounds

The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned hearing of an application in which the runner-up in the January 14 presidential elections, Mr Robert Kyagulanyi, alias Bobi Wine, seeks to formally withdraw the petition against president-elect, Yoweri Museveni.

Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo who is leading the panel of nine judges, was forced to adjourned the scheduled hearing to tomorrow (March 5) at 9am to give time to Mr Kyagulanyi’s lawyers to renew their practicing certificates which expired on March 1.

This was after Mr Kyagulanyi’s lead lawyer in the petition, Mr Medard Sseggona, sought the advice of court saying his practicing certificate and those of his team expired, and the issuance of new ones had been delayed.
