CONFIRMED: Busiro South Mp Peter Sematimba

After only taking the oath of allegiance, Busiro South Member of Parliament Peter Sematimba has been kicked out of the August House.

In a ruling delivered today by High Court Registrar Alex Ajiji on behalf of Lady Justice Lydia Mugambe, it was decided that Sematimba lacks the requisite academic qualifications to be MP.

According to Justice Mugambe, the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) did not verify the diploma tendered in as proof of meeting the education standards of MP as set out under the laws of Uganda.

Sematimba’s political journey spanning 11 years has been a tumultuous one, with the media proprietor-cum pastor having previously failed to become the Mayor of Kampala.
