Kampala: City lawyer Male Mabirizi has vowed to drag Presidential hopeful Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine to court for allegedly providing wrong information concerning his age.
Mabirizi through a press statement says, according to Kyagulanyi’s Diploma Academic Transcript from Makerere University shows his date of birth as February 12,1980 but not 1982 as he claims.
Mabirizi further noted that the only way he can block Bobi wine’s nomination is through arranging evidence that can convict him or any offense involving dishonesty before the election day.
“Accordingly, steps are underway to retrieve the several documents signed by Hon Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert from Makerere University, National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) where he applied for a national identity card, Parliament where he signed the Bio-data form, passport office where he applied for passport and other government offices where he was dishonest with his age,” the statement reads.
It reads in full;
“Fellow Ugandans, in the preamble to our Constitution, we commit ourselves to building a better future through democracy.
The emphasis is on constant questioning of authority, discussion issues and consideration of policy options that are non-violent and respectful of the lives of others democracy (is oriented) to diversity, contradiction and competition.
“1. Therefore applying for Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert’s academic documents and making them public as I am doing now is a true expression of Democracy.
2. I am thankful for the Electoral Commission who availed to me the documents in the shortest time possible. I was availed with all the documents presented by Kyagulanyi at Parliamentary Nomination and was able to discover 3 IMPORTANT aspects:
1. Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert was not born in 1982 as he claims because his Diploma Academic Transcript from Makerere University shows his date of birth as 12, Feb, 1980.
This is a very big discovery for a person who aspires for the first office in this Country and riding at a purported younger age.
2. Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert failed Mathematics at O-Level getting an F9 hence casting doubt on his ability to steer the Country.
3. Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert failed General paper at A-Level no wonder his inability to articulate policy issues for the Country.
WAY FORWARD. Article 102(2) (f) of the Constitution enacted in similar terms like artich 80(2) states that A person is not qualified for election President if that person- has, within seven years immediately preceding the election, been convicted by a competent court of offence involving dishonesty or moral turpitude.
Accordingly, steps are underway to retrieve the several documents signed by Hon. Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert from Makerere University National Identification & Registration Authority (NIRA) where he applied for a National Identity Card, Parliament where he signed the Bio data form, Passport Office where he applied for Passport and other government offices where he was dishonest with his age.
The evidence will sustain CRIMINAL CHARGES against Kyagulanyi under Section 76(b) of The Registration of Persons Act, 2015 which state that “A person who gives false information or makes a false statement when providing information for an entry Or obtaining the issue or re-issue of a national identification card commits an offence and is liable on conviction to hundred and twenty currency points or imprisonment not exceeding five years or both “as well as Section 115 of The Penal Code Act which provides that “Whoever gives to any person employed in the public service any information which he or she knows or believes to be false commits a misdemeanour.”
The charges will be instituted through private prosecution as soon as evidence collection is complete.
Fellow citizens, I know this is a hard time to take the decisions I am taking but that is the pain we have to go through if we are to enjoy the re democracy envisaged by the framers of our Constitution and blood dishonest leaders from making their way to the ballot.
I am aware of those threatening violence because they must be aware that the law allows me to defend myself in all ways possible and also punished not only violence itself but also threatening the same.
Allowing violent threats to detract us will mean giving away our fight for democrat freedoms into the hands of rogues, which we cannot allow.
As for those writing and talking about me in respect of this subject matter, they are free provided they do not defame my name and reputation as that will attract legal sanctions at their own costs.”
