    Hearing of the application seeking to withdraw the election petition which was filed by former Presidential candidate Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu has hit snag as three of his lawyers turned up in court without practicing certificates (PC).

    These led by Hon Medard Ssegona informed court that they already finalized the process of renewal of their certificates but were yet to receive their renewed copies.

    “This matter was filed in January when lawyers were still enjoying the grace period which expired on 1st March 2021. It’s not in our practice to operate outside the law,” Ssegona said.

    He also sought court’s guidance because the matter is of public interest and it requires expeditious hearing.

    Chief Justice Dollo asked the lawyers whether they had informed Kyagulanyi about this issue so that he can prepare and represent himself if possible but they informed him that they never did so.

    Being that this matter is of public importance, the Chief Justice gave Ssegona and his team up to 5pm to finalize with the process of acquiring these certificates before the Chief Registrar.

    “If not I am giving you permission to go to the Registrar to give you a Temporary PC which will expire on 18th March 2021.”

    The lawyers who represented Kyagulanyi.
