A section of Members of Parliament have expressed their reactions over former Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi’s move to withdraw his petition after saying that he would not get justice.
The National Unity Platform Presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu yesterday directed his lawyers to withdrawn the election petition challenging President Yoweri Museveni’s victory.
Kyagulanyi said his team stood no chance in a court that looks compromised by the incumbent.
He said the judges of the Supreme Court met President Museveni who is a respondent in the case up to three times and there is a likelihood of bias.
Hon Ronald Mugume, the Rukungiri Municipality MP says that Kyagulanyi should have continued with the case and expose the weakness in the Judiciary.
He also says that the issue of independence of the judiciary is something that should be discussed since it has continued to be mentioned in all electoral petitions.
Mugume says exposing the system is also a form of justice, and his withdrawal would make it seem like President Museveni won genuinely.
Hon. Mugume on Judiciary;….
Hon Wilfred Niwagaba, the Ndorwa East MP says Kyagulanyi’s decision is his and no one can and should even say he is right or wrong.
Hon Nuwagaba speaking;….
He however says the issue of bias is of strong concern.END.
