Kato Lubwama in hot Soup as EC Clears his Tormentor
By Serestino Tusingwire
Kato Lubwama tormentor in court, Habib Buwembo was on Monday cleared by Electoral Commission over allegations that he is not a registered voter.
Last week, Lubwama’s lawyers told court that Buwembo was not a Lubaga South voter, thus had no obligation to challenge an area MP since he wasn’t voter from the area.
It was from this point that judge Margret Oumo Oguli ordered the Electoral Commission to produce the voters’ register of Lubaga South Constituency to prove whether Buwembo is a registered voter in the constituency.
On Monday, the Commission fulfilled the order and it was confirmed that Buwembo was indeed registered to vote from the constituency which gives him mandate to challenge his area MP.
In his application, Buwembo, contends that Kato Lubwama lacks the minimum academic qualifications to be a member of parliament and that he failed his Uganda Certificate of Education examinations.
Buwembo adds that there is no evidence that Lubwama proceeded to A-level or undertook any course that is equivalent to it.
The respondent Kato Lubwama is seeking for dismissal of the application with costs.
The case is still undergoing court process.
