Robert Kyagulanyi’s Petition challenging President Museveni’s victory has hit yet another dead Rock

National Unity Platform’s Robert Kyagulanyi’s petition challenging President Museveni’s victory has hit yet another dead rock as the Supreme Court on Friday dismissed an application to file additional 127 affidavits.

Kyagulanyi filed an application seeking the court to give him extra time to file additional affidavits in support of his petition challenging President Museveni’s victory in the January,14 polls saying this would enable the court to effectively inquire into the petition and also determine questions raised in the case.

“Allowing the application is in the interest of justice. There are special circumstances we want to present to this court to be considered to allow the application. A number of our witnesses we are to rely on were not released on bail by the General Court Martial as we had anticipated,”- Sseggona told the court on Friday in reference to a group of 36 NUP supporters including Eddie Mutwe and Nubian Li who were denied bail early this week.

However, the panel of nine justices of the Supreme Court in an 8:1 majority ruling said they could not allow the application.

“By a majority of 8:1, this court disallows this application. Costs will be in the cause but detailed reasons will be in the detailed judgment,” Lady Justice Percy Tuhaise who read the ruling on behalf of the other justices said.

The Friday Supreme Court ruling was yet another setback in Kyagulanyi’s petition after the same court had earlier dismissed another application to file new evidence to the case.

The instant application was very crucial to Kyagulanyi who was the first runner up in the January 14 polls after his lawyers told the court that the additional affidavits had evidence to show incidents of ballot stuffing, how results were falsified, bribery incidents, and how the independence of the Electoral Commission was compromised in favor of the first respondent(Museveni).

The petitioner will now have to rely on only 53 affidavits to argue their case challenging Museveni’s victory in the January 14 polls.

    Cool website!

    My name’s Eric, and I just found your site – thenorthernlinkug.com – while surfing the net. You showed up at the top of the search results, so I checked you out. Looks like what you’re doing is pretty cool.

    But if you don’t mind me asking – after someone like me stumbles across thenorthernlinkug.com, what usually happens?

    Is your site generating leads for your business?

    I’m guessing some, but I also bet you’d like more… studies show that 7 out 10 who land on a site wind up leaving without a trace.

    Not good.

    Here’s a thought – what if there was an easy way for every visitor to “raise their hand” to get a phone call from you INSTANTLY… the second they hit your site and said, “call me now.”

    You can –

    Talk With Web Visitor is a software widget that’s works on your site, ready to capture any visitor’s Name, Email address and Phone Number. It lets you know IMMEDIATELY – so that you can talk to that lead while they’re literally looking over your site.

    CLICK HERE https://talkwithwebvisitors.com to try out a Live Demo with Talk With Web Visitor now to see exactly how it works.

    Time is money when it comes to connecting with leads – the difference between contacting someone within 5 minutes versus 30 minutes later can be huge – like 100 times better!

    That’s why we built out our new SMS Text With Lead feature… because once you’ve captured the visitor’s phone number, you can automatically start a text message (SMS) conversation.

    Think about the possibilities – even if you don’t close a deal then and there, you can follow up with text messages for new offers, content links, even just “how you doing?” notes to build a relationship.

    Wouldn’t that be cool?
