    The Supreme Court on Thursday adjourned hearing of an application to withdraw an election petition filed by former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi alais Bobi Wine challenging Museveni’s victory.

    The Chief Justice Alfonse Owiny-Dollo who is leading eight other judges to hear the petition adjourned the proceedings to tomorrow (March 5) 9am to give time to Mr Kyagulanyi’s lawyers to renew their certificates which expired on March 1.

    This was after Mr Kyagulanyi’s lead lawyer in the petition, Mr Medard Sseggona, sought the advice of court saying his practicing certificate and those of his team expired, and the issuance of a new one had been delayed.

    In response, the Attorney General, Mr William Byahuranga suggested that the hearing be adjourned to give Mr Sseggona and his team time to renew their certificates.

    “We are going to suggest that if the court deems it fit, we have no problem with adjournment so that the Sseggona’s finish with their practicing certificate,” Mr Byaruhanga said.

    Consequently, Justice Owiny-Dollo said: We give you up to 5pm today to finish with your practicing certificate. In case the process is long, you can be given a temporary practicing certificate which expire on March 18.”

    The Supreme Court had reconvened Thursday morning to hear an application which seeks to formally withdraw the petition against president-elect, Yoweri Museveni.
