Court Summons Bobi Wine on Falsification Charges

Wakiso Chief Magistrates court has issued summons against Kyadondo East Legislator and Presidential Hopeful Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Sentamu aka Bobi wine on charges of giving false information to the Wakiso district returning officer.

Last week city Lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi after obtaining Kyagulanyi’s academic documents petitioned the Wakiso court seeking to prosecute the legislator for giving the returning officer false information that he was born in 1982 yet his academic documents from Makerere University showed he was born in 1980.

This the lawyer says was din 2017 when Bobi Wine was running for the Parliamentary seat.

Mabirizi asked court to allow him institute Criminal proceedings against Bobi Wine.

In response to this, the magistrate has now summoned Kyagulanyi to appear in court this month for prosecution.

Among other charges Mabirizi instituted against Kyagulanyi in the same court include obtaining Registration by false pretense and uttering false documents.

Yesterday, Kyagulanyi explained the reasons for the discrepancies in his academic documents, which he said dated back to his primary school when he sought to do PLE exams prematurely.
