Chief Justice Owiny Dollo Fires a Shot at NUP President Bobi Wine

Even though the former National Unity Platform presidential candidate Bobi Wine decided to petition president Yoweri Museveni's victory in the just concluded presidential elections, he is still yet to have trust in the judiciary.

Bobi Wine has been accusing the country's chief justice Alfonse Owiny Dollo alongside other three supreme court judges of conflict of interest and want the high court bar them from hearing his petition. Bobi claims that it will never be easy for chief justice Owiny Dollo to rule in favor of him because he at one time formed part of Museveni's defense team at the supreme court.

However, this morning while responding to Bobi Wine's accusations, the chief justice Owiny Dollo said that nobody should fear that they will favor any person adding they took oath to protect the constitution.

"We did not invite anyone to this court, if you have plan B, go ahead but do not bring undeserved chaos to this court," Chief Justice Owiny Dollo said.

He added that the lordships do not have business with matters that arise outside the court warning anyone who tries to intimidate the court that they will crash.

"The last time we sat here I spoke on how we are going to conduct ourselves in the matter before us. All matters that arise outside the court we don't have time for it. If anyone think they can intimidate, blackmail the chief justice of Uganda, he is going to crash," chief justice Owiny Dollo noted.

The chief justice was talking during the hearing of an application in which Bobi Wine is asking the court to allow his additional 127 affidavits. Bobi Wine claims that the additional affidavits form an essential part of his petition seeking to overturn Museveni's victory in the January 2021 presidential elections.
