Court sets date to hear Mbabazi petition


Supreme Court has set Monday March 7, 2016 to start a preliminary hearing of Amama Mbabazi’s petition.

Mbabazi filed a petition on Tuesday challenging President Yoweri Museveni’s victory in the February 18 general election.

The petition also challenges results read put by electoral commission chairman Eng Badru Kiggundu.

In his 28 grounds upon which the petition is based, Mbabazi cites cases of intimidation, arrests of candidates and their supporters and voter bribery which amount to election malpractice.

He also argues that the results announced by Kiggundu were inaccurate.

In a statement issued by the registrar of Supreme Court Tom Chemutai, all concerned parties are expected to attend the pre-hearing conference without fail.

The parties that have been invited include; the Directorate of Legal Service, National Resistance Movement –NRM party Secretariat, the Electoral Commission and the Attorney General.

The other parties invited are; Akampurira and Partners Advocates, Muwema and Company Advocates and Solicitors, and Twinobusingye Severino and Co Advocates; being the law firms representing the petitioner John Patrick Amama Mbabazi.
