KAMPALA – Robert Kyagulanyi, aka Bobi Wine has confirmed that on November 3, 2020, he will get nominated for the country’s presidency.
This is after High Court dismissed a case in which two party members were challenging Bobi Wine’s acquisition of the National Unity Platform (NUP) party.
“I want to tell you yet again that on 3rd of next month, I Kyagulanyi Sentamu will be nominated for Presidency,” Kyagulanyi told journalists in Kampala shortly after the court ruling on Wednesday, 21 October 2020.
Kyagulanyi said that party lost over 50 candidates who were not sure if the legality of NUP will be upheld.
“It was their intention to cast doubt about us as NUP and make sure that not many, as it would have been, nominated under NUP but I want to salute those that have faith in us. You are the real heroes for taking the first step with us even without seeing the whole staircase,” Kyagulanyi added.
“We told the world that this was a bogus case and we are glad the judge agreed with us. Now we can see that the case was brought to cut our speed. It was meant to vulgarise us as NUP.”
On Wednesday, Justice Musa Ssekaana ruled that the case had not merit and consequently threw it out.
“This court declines to entertain the application since it was not brought under any known procedure and secondly it was made to avoid the time limit of 3 months within which an application for judicial review should have been brought,” Ssekaana ruled.
