I NO DEY DO AGAIN!! Uganda’s Bobi Wine Withdraws Court Case Disputing Presidential Election Results – Reports

According to the electoral commission results, which he disputed, Bobi Wine secured nearly 35 per cent of the vote.

Ugandan opposition leader Robert Kyagulanyi, better known as Bobi Wine, said on Monday he was withdrawing his case over election fraud from the country’s highest court, media reported.

The singer-turned-politician ran as against longtime incumbent President Yoweri Museveni in the January election.

The country’s electoral commission declared Mr Museveni won a sixth term with over 58 per cent of the vote, a result Bobi Wine disputed as fraudulent.

“We are withdrawing from the courts but we are not opting for violence.

“We are withdrawing the case from Mr Owiny Dollo’s court,” he said, as reported by Uganda’s Daily Monitor newspaper.

Judge Dollo and two other judges refused to recuse themselves from the case, despite calls from Bobi Wine to do so claiming they had close ties to the president, the Monitor reported.

The ruling National Resistance Movement threatened to force Bobi Wine to pay legal expenses incurred during the short-lived court case, something his lawyer said he was willing to do, the newspaper reported.

Bobi Wine drew international attention for his unlikely bid to unseat Museveni in the January vote.

In the run-up to the election, the prominent performer was detained several times and sparked nationwide unrest that left scores dead in violence with law enforcement.

According to the electoral commission results, which he disputed, Bobi Wine secured nearly 35 per cent of the vote.

Do You Think His Decision To Withdraw The Case Against Incumbent President Makes Sense?
