President Yoweri Museveni of Uganda has finally responded to the National Unity Platform (NUP) party ex-presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine's application to withdraw the petition challenging the president from Supreme Court.
On Wednesday this week, Kyagulanyi through his lawyers filed an application that was requesting the Supreme Court, to allow them to withdraw the petition that was challenging President Museveni's win in the recently concluded elections.
However, in the response, through affidavits, President Museveni told the NUP party boss that he has no problem whatsoever with him withdrawing the petition from the court. Museveni who was the first respondent, however, condemned the act of the NUP party boss, his supporters, and some of his lawyers subjecting the court to insults.
The musician turned politician whose stage name is Bobi Wine claimed that the unfairness of the Supreme Court, abductions, and harassment of his supporters are some of the reasons he opted to withdraw the petition from the courts and take them to public courts.
In the recently concluded elections, Bobi Wine garnered 3.6 million votes coming in the second position after President Museveni who maintained the seat with 6 million votes.
