TRAGEDY!! Another NRM MP Kicked Out of Parliament
By Serestino Tusingwire
High court in Masaka has on Tuesday nullified the election of Buyamba MP Amos Mandela (NRM) over lack of requisite academic documents.
This follows the petition that was filed to court by his immediate opponent Ivan Bwowe (former Makerere University Guild president), challenging his illegality in parliament over academic papers.
Bwowe petitioned the High court challenging Mandela’s victory saying his academic papers had a lot of irregularities which the district registrar did not consider during the nomination exercise.
In his petition, Bwowe said that Amos Mandela’s nomination candidature was premised on fake documents to sneak into the February 18 general elections.
He said that Mandela presented his Primary Leaving Examination-PLE results slip having Majara Amos yet his Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education-UACE and others had Mandela Amos.
Mandela becomes the 23rd NRM MP to be kicked out parliament over different charges, mostly fake academic papers.
