Court has nullified the election of National Resistance Movement’s Katikamu South MP Edward Sembatya over academic qualifications.
Sembatya, a former Accountant in parliament had replaced former Attorney General Kiddu Makubuya who was ejected at last year’s party primaries level.
Presiding Judge Isabirye Kaweesa, held that there were discrepancies in the names of Ssembatya that appeared on several of his academic papers that he presented for nomination of his election to the EC.
Earlier on Tuesday, Rehema Watongola’s election as Kamuli Municipality MP nullified over academic qualifications.
She’s became the 8th NRM MP to be thrown out but by press time the number had risen to 10.
