Ugandan opposition politician Robert Kyagulantyi popularly referred to as Bobi Wine withdraws a petition questioning the re-election of President Yoweri Museveni for a sixth term.


In a press statement on Monday, Bobi Wine who battled for presidency seat on the National Unity Platform (NUP) party ticket, complained about what he termed as bias by the Supreme Court Judges in Uganda.



The 38-year-old said the judges recently rejected his application to table more evidence linking Museveni, 76, to poll fraud, without a “substantial reason”.



“It’s clear that Alfonse Owiny-Dollo (Uganda’s Chief Justice and Head of the Supreme Court) and members of this court are not interested in giving Ugandans justice, ” said Bobi Wine adding that some Judiciary members had private meetings with President Museveni.


He said he would take the distress to the “court of the people justice and opinions”.

“The people of Uganda are going to have a final say in matters concerning their destiny, ” he added.


The Supreme Court on Friday declined extra evidence which the pop star-turned politician’s lawyers said was contained in more than 200 affidavits to beef up their challenge to Museveni’s re-election.
