The Inspector General of Government (IGG) has started investigating junior Lands minister Persis Namuganza for alleged lack of academic papers.
Namuganza who represents Bukono County in Namutumba District in the 10th Parliament is also a member of the Ugandan Cabinet.
IGG Irene Mulyagonja was petitioned by a group calling itself “concerned people” from Busoga Sub-region, on March 7, 2018,.
Mulyagonja said she was going to “carry out preliminary investigations into the complaint of her lacking academic papers”.
The group claims Namuganza failed all subjects during her Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) with F9s [failures].
She allegedly forged Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) and Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) certificates.
These are the minimum academic qualifications for one to be a Member of Parliament as well as a minister.
The minister has already been expelled by Busoga parliamentary caucus for insulting and undermining Speaker Rebecca Kadaga and the Kyabazinga of Busoga Kingdom, Mr William Gabula Nadiope IV.
