Don’t confuse the law with your drama- MP Muhammad Nsereko Scoffs at Fred Nyanzi after petition dismissal

High Court Judge Justice Margaret Apinyi has today dismissed the petition filed by National Unity Platform’s (NUP) Fred Nnyanzi Ssentamu in which he opposed the declaration of Muhammad Nsereko as the Kampala Central MP 2021-2026.

The Judge dismissed the petition on grounds that Nsereko was not duly served by Nyanzi.

While addressing journalists after the ruling, Nsereko claimed that it had to be him to win the case as Nyanzi only played drama all the way.

“The law gives chance to those that are dissatisfied to petition and for sure, he did start with a recount where he lost miserably. He proceeded to a higher court and has been beaten on a preliminary objection and that is acceptable in law,” Nsereko said .

“The law is the law, you cannot confuse it with drama. He went and sought orders to serve and the issue is that you must exhaust those orders. Did he exhaust the remedies? The answer is no. You can’t play around people’s sentiments by coming to play clean in this matter.”

The MP further warned Nyanzi to stop sending him agents.

“He (Fred Nyanzi) should stop sending his agents to plead with me to forgive him of the costs because he did this with the aim of tarnishing my name,” he said.

Nyanzi petitioned the court seeking for a vote recount as he claimed that several votes at various polling stations were not included in the final tally sheet in addition to the disfranchisement of several eligible voters.

In January 2021 elections, Nsereko polled 16,998 while Nyanzi emerged second with 15,975 votes.
