Court Adjourns Bobi Wine’s application hearing as NUP Lawyers Lack Practicing Certificate

SUPREME COURT | KAMPALA: The Supreme Court has adjourned the hearing of Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine’s application seeking to withdraw the Presidential election petition to Friday as Counsel Medard Lubega Segona is told to renew his legal practicing certificate.

When the matter came up for hearing earlier today, Bobi Wine’s lawyer Counsel Ssegona sought advice from the court noting that his practicing certificate and that of his team expired, and the issuance of a new one has been delayed.

While responding to the Attorney General William Byaruhanga; Chief Justice Alphonso Owiny Dollo said “We are going to suggest that if the court deems it fit, we have no problem with adjournment so that the Segona’s finish with their practicing certificate.”

“We give you up to 5:00 PM today to finish with your practicing certificate. In case the process is long, you can be given a temporary practicing certificate. The matter is adjourned to tomorrow,” Owiny-Dollo told Counsel Ssegona.
