Lawyers representing opposition strongman and FDC’s Dr. Kizza Besigye have revealed that they have gathered enough evidence to challenge President Museveni’s win in last week’s elections in courts of law.

Ruling NRM’s Yoweri Museveni was on February 18th announced winner of the presidential elections with 60.75% beating his closest rival, viagra 40mg http://clipvoice.it/administrator/components/com_content/controllers/articles.php Besigye who got 35.3% of the total vote.

Besigye contested the results announced by the Electoral Commission’s Eng Badru Kiggundu saying that they were inconsistent with what was announced down at the polling stations.

His lawyers revealed Friday that they managed to collect all the evidence that would be tabled before court to overturn last week’s results.

“We have found evidence of voter buying, http://cleanenergybiofuels.com/wp-admin/includes/template.php ballot stuffing, intimidation and change of declaration forms,” the head of Besigye’s legal team Yusuf Nsibambi told journalists in Kampala.

Big Task

The lawyers added however, that despite being prepared to pursue the case, they were still limited by funds amounting to over Shs 100million to push this case. They also need a team of over 40 lawyers who they don’t have yet.

“We have a challenge that our client has been stopped from getting out of his home to look for funds to support this whole process,” Nsibambi told journalists.

He however said that party officials and lawyers are meeting at Besigye’s home to find a way forward before the mandatory 10 days of filling the petition elapse.

The FDC spokesman Ibrahim Ssemuju Nganda says the party will use all possible ways to ensure they petition the election results.

“On Monday and Tuesday he (Besigye) next week will meet the FDC working committee and NEC respectively but he has found difficulties in getting out of his home,”Ssemuju told journalists.

Kampala Lord Mayor and one of the members of Besigye’s legal team Erias Lukwago told journalists they had a constructive meeting with Besigye in a bid to forge a way forward. “We have dispatched a team of lawyers to petition court so that police gets away from his home so that he can be able meet different stakeholders, “Lukwago said. He noted that there are some documents that they need to get so as to be able to file the petition against the results. He said that they are aware time is running but they will do everything possible to ensure they overturn the election results

 

In a statement released yesterday, police boss Gen. Kale Kayihura insisted they will stay stationed at Besigye’s home in Kasangati as they think he intends to cause chaos in the city.

Besigye has been arrested more than 5 times in the last one week by police who claim he intends to cause chaos.

The United Nations Secretary General, more about http://cognac-ambassador.com/wp-admin/includes/user.php Ban Ki Moon has told South Sudan President Salva Kiir and rebel chief Dr. Riek Machar to put peace first and embark on quick formation of unity government.

On the last day of his visit to the neighboring country, http://cmlsociety.org/wp-content/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/lib/json.php Ban met with President Salva Kiir, http://cjs.coop/wp/wp-includes/customize/class-wp-customize-new-menu-section.php stressing the urgency of forming a Transitional Government.

He later spoke on the phone Kiir’s Vice-President Dr Riek Machar and visited a protection of civilian site.

During his meeting with President Kiir, the UN chief emphasized that implementing the peace agreement reached this past August must be a matter of priority for the Government of South Sudan, including the urgent formation of a Transitional Government of National Unity with the opposition leader who is now the newly appointed First Vice President.

According to a statement issued by Mr. Ban’s office, in this regard, he welcomed the Government’s commitment to implement transitional security arrangements for Juba in accordance with a proposal put forth earlier in the week by the Joint Monitoring and Evaluation Commission.

Mr. Ban also urged the Kiir to work with Machar upon his return, to “rebuild mutual trust and confidence from the people and the international community to set the country on a path to stability,” the statement said.

The Secretary-General meanwhile strongly condemned the outbreak of violence at the UN protection of civilian site in Malakal last week and called on the Government to conduct a full investigation and bring perpetrators to account.

Mr. Ban reiterated the UN’s commitment to the protection of civilians, both within established UN protection sites and elsewhere in the country, and urged the Government to allow “unfettered access” to UN personnel and humanitarian partners, the statement said.

At a press conference earlier today, the UN chief highlighted that he was concluding his visit to Juba, the South Sudanese capital, at a critical time, and reiterated the UN’s commitment to the peace process and the future of South Sudan.

In particular, Mr. Ban urged all parties to remove restrictions on the freedom of movement of the UN and humanitarian actors and ensure access to people in need of protection, and life-saving aid.
