Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | The former National Unity Platform -NUP presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine has displayed files of his election petition that were withdrawn from the Supreme Court last week to the public.

Kyagulanyi claimed that the DR forms that the party collected, when tallied, clearly indicate that he won the 14th January election with 54.19%. The Electoral Commission announced National Resistance Movement-NRM’s President Museveni winner of the 2021 election with 58.64%. But according to NUP’S audits, Museveni scored only 34.83%.

He said he tried to challenge the election in court but was met with bias from the justices. He highlighted the decision to deny him the chance to amend his petition with supporting affidavits and judges who have a history of working closely with President Museveni as reasons that forced him to withdraw the petition.

Addressing Journalists in a press conference joined by the elected NUP leaders, supporters at Kamwokya’s based party headquarters, Kyagulanyi displayed more than 20,000 Declaration Forms which he said were part of the evidence that was rejected by Supreme Court saying they contain actual results contrary to the electoral commission’s results that were announced.

“The rigging of the election results shows that the Byabakama commission rigged this election brainlessly, the rigging was done in such an immature way, from our tally, even with all the ballot stuffing, we beat Gen Museveni with 54.19.Said Kyagulanyi”.

Kyagulanyi has also announced his party’s next course of action by calling upon his supporters to come out and stage peaceful demonstrations.

“The constitution of Uganda under article 29, gives us the right to protest peacefully,” said Kyagulanyi I call upon all Ugandans to march to the respective electoral commission offices in your areas of residence and those elsewhere to protest peacefully in any way they see fit as long as it is peaceful.”

He said that they are going to peacefully protest against President Museveni’s victory on four grounds among which  is a rigged election he – Kyagulanyi (says he) won by 54.19%, demanding the immediate stop of abductions,  detention of  people for their conscience, and  trying civilians in military courts. 

Yesterday police announced that they had intelligence reports which pointed at NUP supporters planning to hold riots across the country. Amidst heavy deployments in all roads leading to Kamwokya, a police helicopter was also seen hovering over the NUP party offices as the press conference went on.

    9And Absalom happened to meet the servants of David. Absalom was riding on his mule, and the mule went under the thick branches of a great oak, and his head caught fast in the oak, and he was suspended between heaven and earth, while the mule that was under him went on. 10And a certain man saw it and told Joab, “Behold, I saw Absalom hanging in an oak.”
