The lawyers hand in the petition
Earlier, Forum For Democratic Change FDC announced that they have failed to file their petition. They called for a press briefing Wednesday 11am.
FDC, in a tweet, said "One electoral petition from any candidate is sufficient to challenge the 2016 election and Mr. @AmamaMbabazi MP has successfully done so."
