But a note from the court implied that the press will be allowed to attend the function.

In his petition, viagra approved Mbabazi alleges “the election offences by candidate Yoweri Museveni and his agents grossly undermined the electoral processes.”

The former Prime Minister said the malpractices include voter bribery, threats of violence, abusive language, arbitrary arrests of candidates and supporters of opponents as well as, forced disappearances among others.

“These were widely reported and our evidence collected so far attests to the same. All these contravene the Presidential Elections Act,” said the former NRM Secretary General last week.

Mbabazi scored 1.5 percent of the total election outcome against Museveni’s 60 percent.

The election petition is against Candidate Yoweri Kaguta Museveni as the First Respondent and The Electoral Commission as the Second Respondent.

Museveni’s lawyers filed their defence on Sunday, denying accusations that he used in the campaigns derogatory and abusive language.

He also denied ever threatening to arrest candidate Col Dr Kizza Besigye during the three months of campaigning.

The lawyers went on to term as ‘figurative speech,’ the president’s comments in December, in which he likened the actions of his opponents as “touching leopard’s anus.”
