Cantankerous city lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi has asked the Magistrate’s Court in Wakiso to issue an arrest warrant against presidential hopeful Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu alias Bobi Wine over allegations of giving false information to government agencies.
In an application filed at the Chief Magistrate’s court on August 24th, 2020, Mabirizi claims the arrest warrant is in respect of a complaint of criminal case number 598 of 2020, under Section 42(1) (c) and 3 of the Magistrate’s court Act cap 16 Uganda Vs Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert.
In the complaint, Mabirizi allegations are supported by evidence contained in his own affidavit on which he bases to ask the Magistrate to sign a charge sheet for the offense committed by Kyagulanyi of allegedly uttering false information, obtaining registration by false pretense and uttering false documents, which is contrary to the law.
Mabirizi accuses Bobi Wine of allegedly providing wrong information concerning his age and date of birth.
According to a press statement authored by Mabirizi, Kyagulanyi was not born in 1982 as he claims but rather in 1980.
“…his Diploma Academic Transcript from Makerere University shows his date of birth as February 12, 1980,” he noted.
Mabirizi said Bobi wine’s age issue is a big discovery for a person who aspires for the first office in the country “and riding on a purported younger age.”
Mabirizi further noted that the only way he can block Bobi Wine’s nomination is through arranging evidence that can convict him or any offense involving dishonesty before the election day.
“Accordingly, steps are underway to retrieve the several documents signed by Hon Kyagulanyi Ssentamu Robert from Makerere University, National Identification and Registration Authority (NIRA) where he applied for a national identity card, Parliament where he signed the Bio-data form, passport office where he applied for passport and other government offices where he was dishonest with his age,” the statement reads.
