Controversial city lawyer Male Mabirizi has petitioned the Law Development Center magistrates court to issue criminal summons to former presidential candidate Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine over false entry to Makerere University.
Mabirizi claims that Bobi Wine joined Makerere University for a diploma in Music Dance and Drama fraudulently.
“Kyagulanyi’s papers show that he did A’level exams in 1998. The following year he applied for a diploma at Makerere University when he was 20 years.
“However, the law states that for one to be admitted through the mature age system, you have to be 25 years and above. You also have to have spent five years without schooling which all Kyagulanyi failed,” Mabirizi stressed.
Mabirizi seeks the court to cancel Kyagulanyi’s diploma and sentence him to one year in jail.
In June 2021, Mabirizi dragged Makerere University to court on grounds that Bobi Wine illicitly got his diploma in MDD.
Earlier, the lawyer had accused Mr. Wine of lying about his age and date of birth.
