The High Court has dismissed an application in which Moses Nkonge Kibalama contested the ownership of a political party National Unity Platform (NUP).
The presiding judge Musa Ssekaana in his ruling has Wednesday thrown out the case with costs.
NUP is owned by Robert Ssentamu Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine who also leads the party foster parent People Power
“This court declines to entertain the application since it was not brought under any known procedure andsecondly it was made to avoid the time limit of 3 months within which an application for judicial review should have been brought,” the ruling reads in part.
The judge added that 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 a party. It is an abuse of court process.
“This application is dismissed with costs to the respondents I so order,” ruled Ssekaana.
