Lawyer representing a Uganda citizen who is challenging the election of Paul Kato Lubwama as the Lubaga South MP over academic qualifications has asked court to compel Makerere University to be joined in the suit.

Isaac Ssemakadde asked court presided over by Justice Margret Oumo-Oguli to prompt Makerere University to be joined as the third respondents in the suit so that they can make clarification on issues pertaining Lubwama's academic qualifications.

Ssemakadde represented Habib Buwembo, who dragged Lubwama to the civil division of the High Court over for lack of academic qualification suitable for MP seat.

The court also heard that Makerere University availed Lubwama's academic documents to Ssemakadde, save the Diploma certificate awarded to him and Makerere policies regarding its mature age entry examinations

This, he said will establish whether Lubwama sat and passed before being admitted for Diploma in Music and drama in 1992 at Makerere University.

The court has adjourned the case to Friday for a ruling on whether to compel Makerere University to join the suit as a party or not.

The police was heavily deployed at the court premises to control Lubwama's rowdy supporters who drummed while dancing outside court until the court proceedings ended. The supporter also held placards, having Lubwama's portrait.

Other respondents to the case are the Electoral Commission and Lubwama.
