The Electoral commission yesterday postponed the hearing of case in which Nicholas Atuhairwe of FDC is protesting against Bright Rwamirama’s academic papers.
The case has been adjourned to Thursday 7th.Jan.2021.
According to Electoral commission officials lawyers of Minister Rwamirama claimed to had received summons letters very late and therefore requested for more time to scrutinize the petition.
Nicholas Atuhairwe petitioned electoral commission claiming that Rwamirama has three different sets of names that feature on the voter register and on his certificate; a difference which he says presents a possible case of forgery
According to Atuhairwe at the time of Rwamirama’s nomination, he submitted to the commission certificates with different names, he explains that on his O’ level certificate, he is Rwamirama K.Bright and on the national Identify card is Rwamirama Bright Kanyontore
It is this inconsistency that Atuhairwe presented as evidence of lack of authenticity in Rwamirama’s credentials.
Atuhairwe says Rwamirama has never sworn affidavit to confirm his right name and that his current identify is hidden in 3different personalities.
He wants the Electoral commission to disqualify Rwamirama’s candidature.
