The High court in Jinja has dismissed a petition by FDC Jinja east parliamentary flag bearer Mr Paul Mwiru challenging rival Mr Nathan Igeme Nabeta’s academic papers.
Mr Mwiru ran to court claiming that his long term rival Nabeta did not have the required academic qualifications ( A-level certificate) for standing as MP.
Mr Nabeta was jointly sued with the National Council for Higher Education [NCHE] and Uganda National Examinations Board [Uneb].
While Nabeta presented a certificate in Bachelor of International Business obtained from Oklahoma University and in return the NCHE & UNEB issued his an A-level certificate, Mwiru alleges that the certificate given to Mr Nabeta was to enable him study a degree thus not valid.
Mwiru moved that Nabeta be thrown out of the race. However, court threw out his case with costs.
