- He accused him of lacking the requist Academic Qualifications.
- Court ruled that there was no Evidence to prove his allegations.
The High Court has confirmed Busiro North MP Paul Nsubuga as the validly Elected Member of Parliament.
Justice Winfred Nabisinde dismissed an application filed by political contender Edgar Lubadde who challenged MP Nsubuga's victory despite coming last in the race.
Justice Nabisinde ruled that despite, Lubadde alleging that the MP doesn't have academic qualifications and used someone's papers for nomination and subsequent Election, he did not provide any DNA to prove his allegations.
Justice Nabisinde further ruled that the Army had not come forward to complain that MP Nsubuga attained the scholarship meant for children of Soldiers despite allegedly not being a child of a soldier.
Lubadde has now been ordered to pay costs of the suit to MP Nsubuga.
Lubadde had accused Nsubuga of having no academic transcripts to stand as an MP, however, during hearing of the case, Hon.Nsubuga's mother and Headmaster at Ssentema primary School testified on his Parentage and academic qualifications in relation to the discrepancies in his names.
Lubadde, who only managed to pull 199 votes against Nsubuga's 21400 votes, wanted court to nullify Nsubuga's victory accusing him of forging the academic qualifications that he submitted before the Electoral commission for Nomination.
He claimed that the MP's real name was Mukalazi Peter a son of the late Mathias Kibuuka and Agnes Nabawanuka of Kakooge village, Ssentema Parish, Kakiri Subcounty Wakiso District.
Lubadde further contended that under unknown circumstances, Mukalazi whom he knows very well took on the name of his uncle Paul Nsubuga who is a son to Joseph Musoke and Specioza Lunkuse.
However, in his defense, Nsubuga said that he was indeed born and baptized as Mukalazi Peter and was known as the son of the late Mathias Kibuuka and Agnes Nabawanuka.
Through his lawyers of Lukwago and Company, Nsubuga stated that he used Peter Mukalazi for his PLE in the year 2002 at Bukerere St Charles Lwanga but after completing PLE, his mother revealed to him that his biological father was a soldier in UPDF called Charles Mbabali and upon meeting him, the late Mbabali named him Nsubuga Paul.
He said that upon being given the new name by his real father, he dropped Peter Mukalazi and also resat his PLE under his new name Paul Nsubuga.
According to an affidavit sworn in by Nsubuga's mother, Agnes claims that she married Kibuuka while pregnant with Mbabali's baby who was a cousin brother to Kibuuka and that she hid the truth until Mbabali had died to reveal it to her son to avoid family conflicts .
