Bobi Wine withdrew the case citing that the Human Rights Commission Chairperson Ms. Mariam Wangadya is biased, and lacks impartiality, and independence to hear his case.

He explained that he filed the case more than five years ago (17th of December 2018) and has not been given the opportunity for his case hearing.
