Ms. Betty Ssentamu, who came under the National Unity Platform umbrella, had her petition canceled by the Mpigi High Court on a technicality.
Justice Anthony Wabwire dismissed the petition after agreeing with Ms. Nayebare’s legal team that Ms. Ssentamu failed to pay court fees.
According to the rules, she had to pay shs.150, 000 as court fees, which she failed to pay in time.
According to court records, Ms. Ssentamu is indicated to have paid only shs.100, 000.
‘’The petition is dismissed since the petitioner failed to meet the financial demands of the court as required. The petitioner did not also present satisfactory witnesses before the court. All parties, in this case, should meet their own costs,’’ Justice Wabwire said.
On the contrary, though, Ms. Ssentamu insists that she paid shs.250, 000 as court fees.
‘’I paid all the money including the security fees of Shs.100, 000 and the shs150, 000 as petition fees. Everything has been changed. I will have to appeal before the Court of Appeal,’’ she said.
