“We wish to inform you that to the best of our knowledge, Mr. Kafeero SSekitoleko Robert does not possess a formal education certificate that can be equated to Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE).

Without a UCE certificate or UJJC or its equivalent, it implies that UACE certificate or its equivalent in these Business and Technical (BTVET) disciplines cannot be possible.

We wish to confirm to you that the three Technical certificates (MV Part I, II and Ordinary Diploma) that were awarded to Mr. Kafeero Ssekitoleko Robert were nullified.

Investigations about Mr. Kafeero’s admission to the Craft course in Motor Vehicle Mechanics Part I at St. Joseph’s Technical Institute Kisubi, revealed that during the interviews for admission that were held at the Institute; candidates were required to present UCE results.

Kafeero presented hand written UCE results claiming that the result slips had not been issued out by then from UNEB but promised to avail it later.

According to our records, the hand written UCE results he presented bore an index number that belonged to Mr. Mawa Robert. It is on this basis that our office nullified Mr. Kafeero’s Technical Certificates that were awarded to him by UNEB.

Kafeero can therefore, only be cleared, if he proves to us beyond any reasonable doubt that he had the minimum entry requirements for joining Craft Course Part I which were; UCE with passes in Mathematics, Physics and English language or Uganda Junior Technical Certificate (UJTC) or their equivalent as were required by the Ministry of Education at the time.”

As long as the letter in not revoked, Odoi noted that Kafeero does not qualify to run in the party primaries for the post of a Member of Parliament.

“I am therefore ready to organize elections in Nakifuma without Kafeero appearing on the ballot paper.”
