"mobile.monitor.co.ug", Uganda on 25th October 2011 : The Jinja District Lands Officer, Aisha Nahabbo, will spend the next nine months in Luzira Prison after the Anti-Corruption Court found her guilty of forging her academic documents to obtain a job. The court sitting in Kampala found Nahabbo guilty of forging a second class upper Law degree from Makerere University to obtain the job in 2007. Court presided over by magistrate Sarah Langa heard that the land officer had obtained a pass degree in law from Makerere University in 1999 which she did not disclose before the Jinja District Service Commission when she applied for the job and instead presented the forged degree. The magistrate consequently convicted Nahabbo on a count of uttering false documents and sentenced her to nine months in jail.
