THE Inspector General of Government (IGG) regional office in Hoima has ordered the LC5 vice-chairman, Stanley Kiiza, to produce his academic papers or resign.
This followed a petition to the IGGâ€™s office by four residents alleging that Kiiza had no Aâ€™ Level certificate or its equivalent, the minimum academic requirement for any district chairperson or vice-chairperson.
The petitioners are John Mirimo, Yowasi Kiiza, Peter Musinguzi and Doreen Kobusinge, all residents of Hoima town.
In a March 7 letter to the IGG also copied to the district chairman, George Tinkamanyire, and other local leaders, the petitioners said they had evidence to challenge Kiizaâ€™s papers in court.
They said Kiiza, also the Bugambe sub-county councillor, completed Oâ€™ Level at Duhaga S.S. and did not continue with studies but joined Idi Aminâ€™s army.
Kiiza, however, said he would only produce his papers if taken to court.
â€œThis is politics at work, They are trying to tarnish my name,â€ he said, â€œI am not going to give my documents to anybody, not even to the IGG unless taken to courts of law where I will challenge them,â€ he said.
