Bobi Wine made the declaration during a press conference at the NUP offices in Kamwokya on Monday.

“We have decided to remove our case from Owiny Dollo’s court, we shall now take the matter to the court of public opinion,” Bobi Wine said.

Bobi Wine said his team had realized they stood no chance in a court that looks compromised by the incumbent.

“Just like Museveni sought to challenge the victory of 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.

He said that contrary to Museveni’s actions, he was not seeking a violent end to means.
“We are peaceful and we shall not use violence as Museveni did,” he said.

While addressing the press and some party leaders at NUP party offices in Kamwokya, Kyagulanyi said they made the decision after the Supreme Court rejected their amendment with bias last week. 

Kyagulanyi’s lawyers had sought to add an extra 200 affidavits to support their case, but Court denied the petition to amend. 

Kyagulanyi says they made every effort to collect evidence despite challenges, including their supporters and witnesses being arrested, but this was also blocked.

“Amidst the challenges, we were still able to put together evidence well knowing that in the past presidential election petitions (2001 & 2006 Dr. Besigye against Museveni), evidence was continuously admitted. But guess what, when we took our evidence to the Supreme Court even before the hearing, the Supreme Court in an unprecedented manner rejected our evidence” Kyagulanyi told the gathering.

We wonder what next for Bobi Wine.
