Details about Museveni’s academic credentials – Makerere don Mwambutsya clears air: Details about Museveni’s academic credentials – Makerere don Mwambutsya clears air:

Prof. Mwambutsya Ndebesa, a senior lecturer of History at Makerere University! has come out to clear the air on allegations about Museveni’s academic credentials. However many claim that President Yoweri Museveni does not possess a bachelors degree from Dar-es-salaam university.

This follows former Ethics minister Miria Matembe’s allegation recently that the Ugandan president is a senior six dropout who only went Dar-es-Salaam University for courtesy visits.

Matembe challenges President Museveni to produce picture evidence of him as a student of Dar-es-Salaam University.

But Prof. Mwambatsya has watered down Matembe’s allegation, saying there is enough evidence to prove that President Museveni is a graduate of Dar-es-Salaam University.

“Let me say here that although we were not contemporaries at Dar you can’t fail to notice his legacy there. And I can assure you that he is a graduate of the University of East Africa (Dar Es Salaam Constituent college,” Prof. Mwambutsya confirms on his Facebook page.

Surprisingly, I can confirm “Yes he is a graduate. My professor the late Tambila Kapwepe would always ask me about his classmate of the 1960s President Museveni. The difference being that by then he went by the name, Yoweri Tibuhaburwa Museveni,” he adds.

Ex-Ethics minister Miria Matembe claims that Museveni never went to university

In the recent past, there has been an increase in calls from a section of Ugandans to have President Museveni’s academic documents made public. However, a fortnight ago, city lawyer Muwada Nkunyingi petitioned the Electoral Commission (EC) seeking to be furnished with the same.

Muwada says he had already paid Shs20,000 to the bank to enable him access the documents.

He says President Museveni was never vetted when he claimed power in 1986. And he is doubtful if the EC has ever vetted his academic documents.

Nkunyingi’s petition came just days after the EC released academic documents of NUP president Robert Kyagulanyi aka Bobi Wine.
