Ddungu dragged the UOC executive committee and administrator to the Civil Division of Uganda High Court last month for illegal suspension from office.
Roger Hans Ddungu, the embattled former Uganda Olympic Committee (UOC) president has withdrawn a case against seven members of the UOC Executive and the Office administrator.
The case, in which Ddungu was seeking a court injunction on all operations of the institution, was to be heard on Friday afternoon at the Civil Division of the High Court in Kampala. The former UOC boss, however, wrote to the court through his lawyers of Arinaitwe and Company Advocates to withdraw the case.
William Blick, the caretaker UOC President said Ddungu had withdrawn the case after realising that he had no chance of winning it.
The UOC Extra Ordinary Assembly on May 19 banned Ddungu, who until then was challenging his suspension for the national Olympic body. The Assembly faulted Ddungu for taking matters to court which contravenes the UOC constitution and the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Charter.
Ddungu had sued the seven executive members that suspended him, together with the administrative secretary Collins Joseph Ssemanda.
The seven include William Blick, Galabuzi, Kabenge, Godfrey Nuwagaba, Peninnah Kabenge, Sharifah Sanyu, Ambrose Tashobya and Donald Rukare.
In an April 27 notice, Ddungu also wanted Kabenge not to sit on the executive until she is cleared by the general assembly of forgery allegations. Kabenge had been accused of forging Ddungu’s signature.
Blick, who until the latest changes was Ddungu’s vice president in charge of administration, now says that after the withdrawal of the case, they are now ready to have a smooth ride and run the institution properly in the interest of sports.
The UOC Vice President in-charge of technical matters, Denis Galabuzi also said it was good Ddungu had withdrawn the matter because it was going to waste valuable time for all the Executive members instead of concentrating on preparing athletes for the forth coming London Olympics in July.
Uganda has already qualified athletes in track and field events, badminton and swimming, while wildcards are being expected for athletes in weightlifting and tennis.
