THE Court of Appeal has dismissed with costs an election petition by former Nebbi LC5 chairman Esrom William Alenyo

THE Court of Appeal has dismissed with costs an election petition by former Nebbi LC5 chairman Esrom William Alenyo, reports Hillary Nsambu.

Alenyo had sought to cancel the election of his successor, John Pascal Wapokra, citing election malpractices. The court agreed with the Electoral Commission lawyer, Paul Palia Kiapi that Alenyo failed to prove his allegations.

“It was sheer imagination on the part of the petitioner, who failed to satisfy the court that there was any malpractice. He appears to have first thought out allegations in the vain hope of trying to get the evidence to substantiate them,” the court ruled.

Justice Alice Elizabeth Mpagi-Bahigeine wrote the lead judgment. Justice Constance Kategaya Byamugisha concurred with her, while Justice Stephen George Engwau dissented, but reserved his reasons.
