Kyadondo East Member of Parliament and the Principal of People Power Movement, Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi Wine has expressed his dismay over the alternation of his year of birth on parliament of Uganda website.
Earlier this month, a renowned lawyer Male Mabirizi protested the MP’s year of birth saying that it is not true that Bobi wine sat for Uganda certificate of education exams at the age of 14. He went on to petition Uganda electoral commission to avail him with academic papers which the MP filed when he contested in Kyadondo East.
The availed academic papers indicate that the MP failed mathematics at ‘O’ level and general paper at ‘A’ level. This sparked discussions on whether the MP is suitable to lead the country after failing the two subjects. On the other note, the MP missed a first grade by one aggregate at ‘O’ level.
Earlier the MP said his attention had been drawn to an alteration in his information on the website of Parliament.
“My year of birth was altered from 1982 to 1980 without my knowledge. I immediately called the IT department of Parliament and they claimed not to know who made that change. I have tasked them to explain that and will be speaking to the director soon. In the meantime, they rectified the anomaly immediately.” He said
He assured his friends that there is no cause for alarm with regard to all his records whether academic or otherwise.
“I will soon address all of you about the specifics. In the meantime, treat these as the usual desperate attempts by the regime to block, embarrass or detract its opponents. Unfortunately, at every interval, they have always easily found some tools to use in these shameful manoeuvres. They have done worse things and they will do more, but nothing, completely nothing will stop our revolution” he said
