Busiro South Member of Parliament Peter Sematimba has retained his seat in Parliament after the Court of Appeal pronounced itself on a petition filed by Stephen Sekigozi, challenging the validity of Sematimba’s election in the 2016 elections.
According to the petitioner, he did not expect to lose.
“In Uganda’s court, everything is possible. We expected to win this case but someone without academic documents has won,” Sekigozi said.
Previously, Sematimba, a Disc Jockey-turned-politician, has had to contend with questions about his academic documents, after he declared intentions to contest for the Kampala City mayorship.
