Justice Stephen Musota, the Head of Civil Division of the High Court has thrown out the lawsuit against President Museveni with costs for abusing the Court process.

Last week Moses Birigwa and Hakim Kizza petitioned the Court seeking to block the swearing in of President Museveni saying he is over and above the required age for President of Uganda.

In their affidavit, Moses Birigirwa and Hakim Kizza wrote: ‘‘We verify that the respondent (President Museveni ) is 79 years old as he participated in the general elections of 961. That he was voter and staunch supporter of the late Benedict Kiwanuka and the respondent was 23 years old’’

Shortly after the Judgement, the Minister for Presidency Hon. Frank Tumwebaze tweeted: ‘‘ Good for the sponsors’’ implying that perhaps there were forces behind the young men who were trying to block the ceremony slated for 12th May 2016.
