MPs led by Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga on Tuesday congratulated fellow legislator, Busiro South MP Peter Sematimba for passing his senior six exams.
"We congratulate him for passing that hurdle that has been giving him a lot of discomforts especially with his foreign qualifications," Kadaga said amidst applause from MPs.
Sematimba, who scored 13, points in his A ‘level exams which he sat last year, at Kakoola high school in Luweero district, was not in the House during the recognition.
The motion to congratulate Sematimba was moved by Erute South MP Jonathan Odur, who implored the House to congratulate Sematimba like it has done to other MPs that have registered success in different fields
Sematimba sat for his first Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) exams last year after he was dragged to court for lack of a senior six certificate which is number one academic qualification requirement for MPs.
