Kalangala speaker returns to secondary school

Kalangala District speaker has returned to school to acquire an equivalent of an A-Level certificate required for one to become a Member of Parliament.
Mr Vereriano Ssenabulya recently enrolled at Bishop Dunstan Memorial Secondary School to prepare for A-Level examination scheduled for November.

He told the Daily Monitor he had been reading History, Economics and Luganda since last year. Mr Ssenabulya said aancement of his political career had been inhabited by the lack of an A-Level certificate.

Available information indicates Mr Ssenabulya wants to contest for the Kyamuswa Constituency parliamentary seat in 2016. The seat is currently occupied by former Ethics minister Tim Lwanga.
“I have been a district speaker since 1996. Now my people want me to represent them in Parliament. I do not want to disappoint them. Which is why I have gone back to school to attain the required qualification,” he said.
Mr Lwanga has not made it known whether he will quit in 2016.

Other people interested in the same seat include Kalangala District Woman MP Carol Nanyondo Birungi, and district youth chairman Frank Ssemakula.
Asked how he manages to juggle his work as district speaker and school, Mr Ssenabulya said: “My teachers are very understanding. When I miss some of the lessons, they are willing to give me personal tuition. I also can hold discussions with my fellow students…”
