Bobi Wine Finally Asks his Legal Team to Withdraw Petition Challenging Museveni's Victory

The National Unity Platform (NUP) president Bobi Wine this afternoon instructed his lawyers to withdraw presidential polls petition which he had filed in the supreme court on 1st February challenging the victory of president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni in the just concluded January 14th, presidential elections.

While addressing the nation at the NUP party offices this afternoon, Bobi Wine noted that they have decided to withdraw from the court but not opting for violence.

Bobi Wine has been accusing the Chief Justice Owiny Dollo and other supreme court judges of being biased in the manner they are handling his petition against president Yoweri Museveni.

"We are withdrawing from the court but we are not opting for violence. We are going to the court of public opinion and we shall be informing the people of Uganda our next steps," Bobi Wine noted.

The withdrawal comes days after the supreme cocurt denied Bobi Wine legal team to file an additional 127 affidavits claiming they were time bound. Bobi Wine had only filed 50 affidavits challenging Museveni's victory."Just like president Yoweri Museveni sought to challenge the victory of president Obote in 1980, and later withdrew the case and chose to go to the bush, we have also sought the same since the circumstances are not any different," Bobi Wine said.
