The High Court has postponed the judgement in the matter between the President of the National Unity Platform (NUP) formerly National Unity Reconciliation and Development Party (NURDP) Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu and Mzee Nkonge Kibalama.

In August, former NURDP members, Basile Difas and Hassan Twaha dragged Mzee Kibalama and other individuals to court for allegedly selling the party to Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine and later changing its name and leadership.

Last month during the cross examination of the founder of the party Mzee Nkonge, the High Court judge Musa Ssekaana pledged to deliver his ruling today.

Kibalama was appearing before Court to pronounce himself about changing his affidavits in the case brought against him. Kibalama and former party secretary had sworn and signed affidavits that the party leadership and the name were changed after delegates’ conference which occurred in Kakiri.

And according to a statement released by the spokesperson of the judiciary, Jameson Karemani, the judgment has been deferred to next week.

“Be informed that the NUP judgment will not be there today but on some other day next week to be communicated to you,” Karemani said.

In 2019, Kibalama and other party members applied to the Electoral commission to have NURP change to NUP and the application was objected. It was revealed that in 2012 and 2013, they attempted to change the party name to Independent National Unity Party however their application was declined.

During cross examination, Mzee Nkonge first objected to filing right documents to have NURP changed to NUP however in turn he contradicted himself saying the documents were false and he made a mistake. He objected that Bobi Wine is the president of NUP.

The High Court has this morning dismissed the case that was filed against the new leadership of the National Unity Platform (NUP) party. The founder of NUP, Moses Kibalama Nkonge filled the case with the hope of getting back his party from Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu a.k.a Bobi Wine.

According to High Court Judge Musa Sekaana in a judgment sent via email: “The judicial review guidelines or rules equally provide for locus standi and this would have been the threshold before the applicants would seek to challenge actions of the party. It is an abuse of court process. This application is dismissed with costs to the respondents.”

According to NUP spokesperson Joel Senyonyi, the Application was dismissed with costs by the judge as because of that, the party is now recognized as legally existent.

This was also posted on NUP’s twitter page: “THE NUP- KIBALAMA COURT CASE HAS BEEN DISMISSED. WE ARE A LEGALLY EXISTING POLITICAL PARTY NUP EVERYWHERE #mission2021
