Kyadondo East Member of Parliament, also aspiring presidential candidate Hon Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi Wine has called upon the general public to stay calm and ignore “baseless rumors” about his academic documents and age.
For the past few days, city lawyer Hassan Male Mabirizi has engaged various agencies in the country seeking access to Kyagulanyi’s transcripts and other documents which he says have many contradictions which deserve clarification.
In his Facebook post on his official page, Kyagulanyi expressed concern on how the administrators of the Parliamentary website page edited his date of birth on the site without his knowledge.
“My year of birth was altered from 1982 to 1980 without my knowledge. I immediately called the IT department of Parliament and they claimed not to know who made that change. I have tasked them to explain that and will be speaking to the Director soon. In the meantime, they rectified the anomaly immediately.”
Kyagulanyi has assured all his supporters that they should not get worried because there is no cause for alarm in all his records either academic or otherwise.
“I will soon address all of you about the specifics. In the meantime, treat these as the usual desperate attempts by the regime to block, embarrass or detract its opponents,” Kyagulanyi said.
“Unfortunately, at every interval, they have always easily found some tools to use in these shameful maneuvers. They have done worse things and they will do more, but nothing, completely nothing will stop our revolution,” he added.
This is the first time for the legislator to respond about the allegations surrounding his date of birth and education background.
