Nyanzi Brands Bobi Wine ‘Liar’Over Real age Irony as Mabirizi Seeks to Disqualify him
It seems the Loose mouthed Kampala Woman MP Aspirant and activist, Stella Nyanzi is rallying behind the pounding city Lawyer Male Mabirizi to pin National Unity Platform-NUP boss Robert Kyagulanyi alias Bobi Wine, over his real age contradictions.
Mabirizi is, petitioning the Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) for Bobi’s academic documents. claiming that Bobi has given them misleading information that could pose a big threat of disqualification to his 2021 presidential ambitions.
Nyanzi says for Bobi wine to lie about something as predictable as age only shows that he is lying to Ugandans about so many other things.
She says this matter of age that seems trivial for many raises deeper questions about trust and if Ugandans can trust someone who lies about his age.
“Call it trivia on my part, but this seemingly small matter raises deep questions about trust. How do we trust the words of a man who lies about his age?” she wondered.
“How do we plan with a man who lies about his age? How do we depend on the promises of a man who lies about his age?”
In Mabirizi’s petition, he questions Bobi’s claims that he was born in 1982 and sat A-Level exams in 1998, saying, “It meant that he sat A-Level at 16 years, O-Level at 13, Primary Leaving Examinations at 9 and joined Primary 1 at two years.”
Mabirizi also states that Makerere University Academic Transcript revealed that Bobi’s age differs from what he wrote in the nomination document as it shows that he was born on February 12, 1980, yet he claimed: “to be 35 years as of 31st May 2017, meaning that he was born in 1982.”
Mabirizi further contends that “although UNEB Letter of certification of results for UCE in the names of Kyagulanyi Ssentamu R shows that he sat the exams in 1996 that of UACE in the names of Kyagulanyi Robert Sentamu shows that he sat the exams in March 1998, within a space of fewer than two years.”
The lawyer has since written to Wakiso Chief Magistrate’s Court seeking permission to prosecute Bobi with five counts resulting from the contents of his Academic qualifications.
Nyanzi, -FDC recently broke ties with People Power movement that she had Claimed equal allegiance to after Bobi wine in a rather shocking move launched the National Unity Platform.
Bobi is yet to speak out on the contentious issues that threaten his budding political career.
