LUWEERO district LC5 chairman Hajji Abdul Nadduli was on Friday afternoon grilled by the Electoral Offences Squad over allegations that he was nominated on forged academic papers.

The vocal Nadduli got to the Criminal Investigation Department (CID) headquarters in Kampala at about 4:30pm and went straight to the squad offices.

Squad boss Lemmy Twinomugisha interrogated him for about two hours. He emerged from the office at 7:00pm.

Nadduli, a strong advocate of large families, did not record a statement after he presented a letter from the National Council of Higher Education (NCHE) showing that his qualifications were equal to an A-level certificate.

Nadduli was nominated in Luweero on December 30 last year but his papers were not certified by the NCHE, Twinomugisha said.

The Local Government Act of 2005 states that a person intending to stand as an LC5 chairperson shall have a minimum qualification of an A-level certificate.

After his nomination, Japheth Kyeyune petitioned the Electoral Commission (EC) on January 4.
“Hajji Nadduli does not possess a straight A-level certificate and his qualifications were never equated by the NCHE,” the letter said.

The CID received a copy of the letter and summoned Nadduli, Twinomugisha explained
On getting the summons, Nadduli went to the NHCE and got a letter dated January 13, which showed that his other certificates were equivalent to A-level.

“I certify that Abdul Nadduli who was born on 22nd, December 1942 has satisfied the National Council of Higher Education that he has completed formal education of advanced level or its equivalent,” the letter said.

Signed by the assistant executive director, Yeko Acato, the letter said he had a Bachelors degree in Social work and social administration from Bugema University (2005), a certificate from Makerere Intermediate Institute of Adult and Continuing Education (1973) and the East African Certificate of Education (1978).

Twinomugisha said they would refer the matter to the Electoral Commission.
