In a ruling read by the Chief Justice Bart Katureebe, the panel of nine judges agreed that the petitioner did not present substantial evidence to prove that the Electoral Commission did not comply with the law.
The judge observed that court can only order police to produce a missing person if it is sure that indeed that missing person is in police detention. She added that in this present case, there is no evidence that Aine is being held in police custody.
Robert Kiggundu, the election supervisor of Kibugwe in Ntete, says the polling agents were roughed up and evicted from the polling station by police officers and Kasekende Namugera, a known campaign manager of Joseph Ssekabiito, the NRM candidate.
Viola Nahabwe, the UPC candidate says the decision by the party leaders to undermine her bid is unfortunate. He singles out Paul Karekyera, the former Kabale UPC chairperson and his successor Wilkens Arinaitwe of leading the confusion among other members.
Dr. Olara Otunnu, the Uganda Peoples Congress party president, and member of TDA National taskforce, says all candidates fronted by TDA have received certificates of endorsement from the Alliance confirming their candidature.
Christopher Aine is accused of disobeying lawful orders, assault, obstruction and resisting arrest while in Jinja. The cases were committed in September, 2015 when Mbabazi was barred from accessing Kazimingi grounds in Jinja for a consultative meeting.
Lumumba wrote a letter last week contesting Mbabazi\'s plans to hold consultations across the country, saying the move contravenes NRM party procedures. In the meetings, Mbabazi would be seeking the views of the electorate on his bid to contest for the Presidency ahead of the 2016 general election.
