Bobi Wine Challenges EC, UNEB To Release Museveni’s Academic Papers

Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine has challenged the Electoral Commission (EC) and Uganda National Examinations Board (Uneb) to release President Yoweri Museveni’s and wife Janet Museveni’s academic papers.

Last week, city lawyer Male Mabirizi wrote to the EC, asking for Kyagulanyi’s academic qualifications, and these were released almost instantly.

Another lawyer, Nkunyinji Muwada wrote to the same EC days later, this time demanding for President Museveni’s documents that he used in 2016 but the Electoral Commission has not responded.

Speaking to journalists on Monday, Kyagulanyi said if the EC and UNEB claim to be independent, let them use that same urgency and release President Museveni’s academic documents to the lawyers who asked for them.

Bobi says the EC should expedite the process of releasing the Musevenis’ papers the same way the elections body quickly gave Mabirizi copies of his academic documents.

“Regarding the Electoral Commission, UNEB and other state institutions, I am aware that several lawyers and private individuals have written asking for information regarding the academic papers of President Museveni, his wife and several other NRM ministers,” observed Bobi Wine.

“You have already taken a much longer time to respond to their request than the time you took to release my academic papers!”

He added that Uneb and the EC should not stand in Ugandans’ way of ascertaining Museveni’s nationality, age and academic qualifications.

“I am challenging you to release them with the same urgency since you claim to be acting within the law and independently,” he dared.

“Ugandans want to be sure that indeed, President Museveni has the qualifications he claims to have, that he was born when he claims to have been born and that he is in fact a Ugandan,  this is a debate that has raged on for years.”
