Kampala High Court has rejected Lubaga South MP Paul Kato Lubwama’s appeal application against election petition.
The High Court Kampala was making its pronouciation on the application filed by Rubaga South MP Paul Kato Lubwama seeking to appeal against its decision that allowed a voter to challenge his academic qualifications.
Justice Margaret Oumo Oguli on December 19th allowed Rubaga South voter to file an election petition against Kato Lubwama challenging his academic qualifications.
But Lubwama being dissatisfied with the decision filed an application asking the judge allow him appeal.
Justice Oguli in her ruling said there is unchallenged evidence on court records showing that Kato Lubwama lied to the Electoral Commission that he possessed a valid O level certificate from Old Kampala SSS yet the same is not registered by the Uganda Registration Services Bureau.
Habib Buwembo voter and petitioner insists that Lubwama scored aggregate 7 which could not be relied on to sit mature age entry exams to be admitted for a diploma in Music Dance and Drama at Makerere University.
Buwembo this week filed a main election petition challenging Lubwama’s election but it is yet to be fixed for hearing.
