The High Court sitting in Jinja has thrown out Lugazi Municipality MP-elect Isaac Mulindwa Ssozi over lack of academic qualifications.

His Lugazi Municipality (formerly Buikwe West) rival Dr. Nabatanzi Lugudde accused Mulindwa Ssozi of using different names while being nominated, which is illegal.

According to court, Mr. Mulindwa doesn’t have a Primary Leaving Examinations certificate nor does he have a national ID. Also, court said he used the documents of another person called Hassan Mulindwa, to stand for elections.
