Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has withdrawn the Presidential petition challenging the 2021 Uganda election results, his party’s spokesman Joel Ssenyonyi has told NTV Uganda.

“We have respect for the justice system but we have our reservations regarding the way things are being done in the build up to this petition, that’s why we have decided to withdraw it,” Ssenyonyi.

His party the National Unity Platform (NUP) early this month filed the petition with the  Supreme Court but have had difficulty presenting their evidence in the prescribed time set by the Chief Justice Owiny Dollo.

They will face huge costs for their decision, but the NUP spokesman put it into perspective, saying, “we are not worried about the costs because ultimately, we have been paying the price ever since we decided to challenge President Museveni. Look at how many lives we have lost. What is more expensive than life?”

There had been several reports at the weekend indicating that NUP were considering pulling out of the case.

“We are withdrawing from the courts but we are not opting for violence. We are withdrawing the case from Mr Owiny Dollo’s court,” said Bobi Wine who had asked that several judges be disqualified from hearing the petition.

  1. Bobi Wine is a comedian if he’s withdrawing his petition at this time. This guy has been used by politicians as a stepping stone for them to go to parliament to get hefty allowances. His own brother and sister could not make it to parliament through the party he hijacked only four months ago. It’s the members of his party now pressuring him to drop the petition he had filed. They are enough to have worn parliamentary seats and are only waiting to be sworn in as MPs.

    “Look at how many lives we have lost. What is more expensive than life?”
    These are the lives Bobi Wine offered as sacrifices to Satan whenever he defied the security forces. They were not enough to appease Satan and that’s how he lost. Now he will be haunted by their spirits whatever he tries to do. He flew his own children to the US while the orphans of those people he duped and turned into sacrifices are destitute. Those involved in such practices in order to succeed politically must repent, otherwise, the wrath of God will catch up with them.

  2. Happy to read the independent on line.
