City lawyer Male Mabirizi has petitioned the Supreme Court seeking to stop the delivery of detailed rulings arising from the presidential election petitions filed by the former presidential candidate, Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu.
In his application filed this morning, Mabirizi wants court to halt the delivery of the rulings pending the determination of his application to stay all the proceedings arising from the petition.
Kyagulanyi has since withdrawn the application, in which he had sought to overturn president, Yoweri Museveni’s victory in the January 14, 2021 polls.
The Supreme Court also indicated that it would issue a detailed ruling stating the reasons why they allowed Kyagulanyi to withdraw the petition and decide whether or not to condemn him to pay costs of the suit.
It these detailed rulings that Mabirizi wants to stop, saying that failure to do so would amount to an incurable procedural irregularity and lead to a declaration that all those proceedings were illegal as it was held by the East African Court of Justice Appellate Division in 2016.
The Supreme Court is expected to pronounce itself on the matter.
