The Director of Legal Services in the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) party, Oscar Kihika has observed, the withdrawal of the petition by Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu from the Supreme Court denied the country a renewed legal system.
He said that the country has been denied an opportunity of having renewed jurisprudence arising out of the issues that had been raised in the election petition.
Kihika also said the general public has also missed the chance of unveiling of Kyagulanyi’s falsehoods in the petition.
He says that his team had evidence that the petitioner had intentionally defied the set rules of the election and made it look like he was persecuted and tendered in affidavits with forged signatures among other issues.
Kahika also alleged that Kyagulanyi’s case was full of contradictions and that the vote-rigging video evidence tendered in had been forged since it was captured two days after the election.
However, Kyagulanyi’s lawyer, Anthony Wameli equally accused Museveni’s lawyers and the other respondents of foul play questioning how Kihika accessed that evidence he is referring to yet the court declined to receive the same.
