The talk about the academic qualifications of Katusiime Annet Mugisha, an NMR flag bearer aspirant in the Bushenyi District is one that can’t seem to end.
Annet Mugisha, a wife to National Water and Sewerage Cooperation M.D. Eng. Silver Mugisha has on several occasions been tasked to defend her academic qualifications.
According to Zeddy Gakyalo and Phillip Murwani (the Petitioners), the documents are questionable and therefore ask that she may be disqualified from contesting against the incumbent Woman MP of Bushenyi District, Hon. Mary Karooro Okurut. Hon Karooro also doubles as the Cabinet Minister in Charge of General Duties in the Office of the Prime Minister.
The Petitioners allege that Annet Katusiime failed O’level with several F9’s which directly meant that she was not qualified to proceed to A’Level which is a minimum requirement for one to stand as a member of Parliament of Uganda. In addition to this, the petitioners allege that she possesses two national identity cards which is an illegality.
However, our sources learnt that up to date, a judgement in this matter has never been delivered by the NRM secretariat yet the Party Primaries are scheduled for 4th September, 2020. This has left many wondering whether this case wont be overtaken by events in case the elections are held before a judgment is passed on this matter.
