Moses Kibalama cries in court, case adjourned till October 16
The Kampala High Court’s Civil Division will on October 16,2020 pronounce itself on whether Presidential Aspirant Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu’s National Unity Party (NUP) is legally registered with Uganda’s Electoral Commission.
This follows evidence that has been adduced in court by two founder members of National Unity Reconciliation Party (NURP) Moses Kibalama Nkonge – president and secretary general Secretary General-Simbwa Nkonge informing presiding Judge Musa Ssekaana that they furnished forged documents to the Electoral Commission for purposes of changing their party name to National Unity Party(NUP).
Kibalama and Ssimbwa who appeared in court today morning following summons requiring them to come and respond to questions from Bobi Wine lawyers, admitted that they did this without following the party constitution.
Founder members of NURP filled this case against Bobi Wine challenging the sale and change of their NURP party name without their consent.
After the duo’s evidence, Justice Ssekaana asked both side lawyers including Medard Lubega Ssegona for Bobi Wine and Eric Sabiiti for EC to file written submissions that will help the Court reach a just decision in the matter.
Meanwhile, Kibalama who cried several times during cross-examination confirmed to court that he has been under military protection for two weeks at his home in Mbale on orders of Uganda People’s Defence Force (UPDF) Chief of Defence Forces (CDF) Gen. David Muhoozi whom he previously held a meeting with.
UPDF later clarified that the meeting between former National Unity Reconciliation Party-NURP president Moses Kibalama and the Chief of Defence Forces-CDF Gen. David Muhoozi happened long before Kibalama left his residence.
