Court to rule on Makerere challenge of MP Kato Lubwama academic qualifications

High Court Judge Margret Oguli Oumo is today expected to rule on whether to add Makerere University as a party to an application seeking to challenge academic qualifications of Rubaga South MP Kato Lubwama.

The judge is set to deliver her ruling today at 2: 30pm at the High Court Civil Division located on Twed towers in Nakasero

A Rubaga South voter Habib Buwembo filed an application against his area MP Paul Kato Lubwama seeking permission to file out of time an election petition to expel Lubwama out of parliament for lack of requisite academic qualifications.

Buwembo wants Makerere University to avail him with policies regarding its mature age entry examinations so as to establish whether Lubwama sat and passed these exams before being admitted for a Diploma in Music Dance and Drama in 1992.

The voter also accuses the University for failing to produce the Diploma
Certificate it awarded to Kato Lubwama.

According to Buwembo’s lawyer Isaac Ssemakadde, these documents cannot be accessed anywhere since even on nomination day, Lubwama presented to the District returning officer a letter titled “To Whom it May Concern ” written by the University’s academic registrar on 15th/October 2015.
