The Lubaga South MP, Hon Paul Kato Lubwama, is in court over lack of academic papers. Apparently, one political activist has taken on the legislator claiming he does not have the minimum qualifications to be in parliament. While appearing on TV last night, the comedian confirmed that he has his O-level certificate but when he joined A-level, he dropped out due to lack of school fees.
However, after doing special exams, he was later able to join Makerere University for the Music Dance and Drama program where he was awarded a Diploma.
Kato admitted to getting several 9's which are equivalent to failing in his ordinary level. English and Mathematics were some of the subjects where Kato scored F9. Th court case will kick off on Oct 31 at the High Court in Kampala.
Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) confirmed that with his type of marks at O-level, he did not qualify to get a certificate that required him to proceed for A-level, it's for this and other reasons that activist Habib Buwembo wants court to consider for dropping him out of parliament.
Lubwama's troubles start when he said that the amount of Shs 150 million per MP to buy a car was actually not enough, the amount ought to have been increased to Shs 300m.
Last night, he went on to say that we all work to be better so he is not exception...
