UNEB   UACE EXAMS

Busiro South Member of Parliament Peter Sematimba sat his first Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) exams on Thursday. 

Sematimba chose to sit for his papers from the outskirts of the city at Kakoola High School in Ziroobwe sub-county, Luweero district. He joined his fellow S.6 students at around 2:00 pm for his first paper, General Paper.

Just like any other student, he was thoroughly inspected before he could proceed to the examination room.

According to the headteacher of the school Micheal Wagaba, Sematimba is an obedient student. 

“When Sematimba came here with the intention to sit UACE, I doubted his seriousness and ability to follow up with classwork. He has proved me wrong,” Wagaba said

Sematimba has been studying Divinity, Literature, Fine Art and a subsidiary of Computer.

Sematimba says he went back to school because people especially political opponents find it hard to understand his American academic documents.

He said he has spent a lot of money in court trying to prove that his documents were equivalent to an A’level certificate.

“In order to avoid another court battle, I found it necessary to go back to school

Sematimba lost his parliamentary seat in 2016 after Democratic Party candidate Stephen Sekigozi dragged him to court over academic papers.

However, Sematimba, through his lawyers, appealed the ruling and in 2017. The Court of Appeal upheld his election, saying there was nothing wrong with his academic papers.

The minimum qualification for an MP is an A’level certificate.
