Go Forward presidential candidate Amama Mbabazi alleges that the president bribed voters with all sorts of things in the 2016 election.
This is contained in his amended petition presented by his lawyer Muhammad Mbabazi in Supreme Court on Monday.
NRM lawyers arguing that it was a new petition of its own first rejected the amended version.
It also presented new 10 grounds on top of the original 28 grounds.
The amended petition alleges that president Museveni bribed 30,000 families in Mayuge district with 500 hectares of land to vote him, which was unfair to other candidates.
In his first petition, Mbabazi also accuses Museveni of bribing farmers with 1.8 million how’s towards election time.
He further accuses the president of using derogatory language to disenfranchise those who would have voted his opponents.
In a first court victory, Supreme Court judges led by Chief Justice Bart Katureebe accepted Mbabazi’s amended petition.
According to his lawyer Asuman Basalirwa, the amended petition gives them more solid grounds.
Court set Monday March 14 as the date for hearing the petition.
