Former presidential candidate and NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has run to the High court seeking a permanent injunction against  the continued threats by the commissioner General of the Uganda Revenue Atihority from impounding  and re-examing his recently acquired  motorvehicle;  a Toyata Land cruiser ( UBJ  667F). Kyagulanyi contends the acts of the commissioner General in  threatening to impound his vehicle are  an infringement of his guaranteed  constitutional rights to quietly enjoy and possess his property. Kyagulanyi  claims  that  since his participation as a candidate in the recently concluded presidential election where NRM’s Tibahaburwa was declared winner , he has been a target by security and other government agencies thus forcing him to start  wearing  bullet ...

Bobi wine- since we petitioned the Supreme Court, the Chief Justice has met Kaguta Museveni about 3 times. Imagine this is an arbitrator meeting a respondent in a case. In one of the meetings, the Chief Justice presented a budget to Museveni. Bobi wine cites precedent of Amama Mbabazi election petition where the court accepted an amendment. "It shocked us and the entire world that the Supreme Court rejected our application to file an amendment to the petition" Bobi wine - We are convinced that the Supreme Court has a predetermined mind to reject our petition on grounds that we didn't have enough evidence. But this is the same court wc has refused to take our evidence. Part of the evidence is a video from Kalundi Serumaga Bobi wine - the evidence also had DR forms from Kiruhura wh...
