Lawyer: Besigye has run out of time to petition


I do not ordinarily tweet about matters in which I am or may be instructed but these are not ordinary circumstances.
Myself and other lawyers were invited to to attend. My colleague and I were stopped at a road block from attending the meeting.

An aggrieved candidate has 10 days to prepare & lodge a presidential election petition. This is a very short time. Time runs out on Tuesday.

I do not think that Kizza Besigye has had a fair opportunity to prepare for a petition. This is very unfortunate for him and for the country.

I will not be acting for Dr. Kizza Besigye in a petition when he is under such a handicap.
To all who have been in touch, concerned about our safety, we’re safe and unharmed. We were just asked by Police to
turn back, which we did.
