Busiro South constituency MP-elect Peter Ssematimba has been thrown out after the High Court on Friday declared it vacant.

This followed a petition filed by Democratic Party’s Stephen Ssekigozi, who contested against Mr Ssematimba of the ruling National Resistance Movement (NRM) for the Busiro South parliamentary seat and lost.

According to Court, National Council for Higher education did not verify Mr Ssematimba’s academic papers.

While testifying in court, the National Council For Higher Education (NCHE) executive director, Prof John Asibo, said Mr Ssematimba has an Ordinary Level certificate from Kings College Buddo, a pre-medicine transcript from Asuza Pacific University and a diploma in electrical and computer technology from Pacific Coast Technical Institute, both in the United States of America.
