Ex- People Power Movement Mobiliser Acholi Sub-region Bosmic Otim’s Political ambitions to contest for a Parliamentary seat hang in balance over failure to obtain at least a single pass.
According to the Laws of Uganda, Any Person contesting for a Parliamentary Position is required to have the certificate, granted upon obtaining principal and/or subsidiary passes at A’ level but according to the results released by UNEB but unfortunately, Otim didn’t score a single pass.
Bosmic Otim index number U0226/507, who was among the 50 students who sat for UACE from Gulu Hall Centre hosted at St Joseph’s College Layibi in Gulu municipality scored F9 in General paper, F in History, F in CRE, F in Arts and X in CST.
Nevertheless, he argues that his results were purposely altered to disorganize” him and edge him out of contesting for a seat in 2021.
“A lot of concerns were raised since I joined the National Resistance Movement (NRM) party. The top shots will act from up and sabotage me. Some two months ago, those same politicians looked for my index number and I believe this is what they have done, this is open malice,” Otim said
Despite Otim preparing and participating in all the exams, he notes that he is not demoralized by the results and his ambition to represent Kitgum Municipality which is currently occupied by Beatrice Anywar still stands.
Otim recently joined the ruling NRM after he fell out with the People Power Movement claiming that the people power leadership was never supportive of his struggles in the region.
