The National Unity Platform (NUP) ex-presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has threatened to withdraw his petition that seeks to challenge President Museveni's 2021 election victory for what he claimed that "lack of trust" in the Chief Justice.
According to the sources, the NUP party leader claimed that Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo who is handling his petition should not handle his petition given that he is related to president Museveni in one way or another.
Speaking with journalists in the NUP party headquarters in Kamwokya on Tuesday, Mr. Kyagulanyi argued that CJ Owiny-Dollo was once President Museveni's minister and he was also his lawyer during the petition that was filed by former presidential Kizza Besigye in 2006 elections.
Mr. Kyagulanyi also said that the CJ has been meeting often with the head of state for unknown reasons which has made him lack trust in Mr. Owiny-Dollo on how he will handle his petition.
In the petition that was filed by the NUP party lawyers on Feb 1st, Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine wanted the court to nullify the 2021 General Elections and also to bar President Museveni from participating in the future elections.
Bobi Wine came second after he garnered 35 percent of the valid votes in which incumbent Museveni was announced as the winner with around 6 million votes.
He has now threatened to withdraw the petition from the Supreme Court if at all his cries are not heard.
