The High Court has dismissed the case that was filed against the new leadership of the National Unity Platform (NUP) party. In the case, two former members of the party had challenged the recent change of leadership and the party name.
High Court Judge Musa Sekaana delivered his judgment on the matter via email on Wednesday Morning, saying: “This court declines to entertain the application since it was not brought under any known procedure and secondly it was made to avoid the time limit of 3 months within which an application for judicial review should have been brought. 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.”
Sekaana further told the petitioners to pay costs to the respondents.
According to NUP spokesperson Joel Senyonyi, the Application was dismissed with costs by the judge as because of that, the party is now recognized as legally existent.
