In a disturbing occurrence that sent shock-waves through Uganda’s legal system, a male was detained for falsely posing as a woman to take his girlfriend’s law examinations.
After being elevated to the prestigious position of Grade One Magistrate, this incident took place only a few weeks later.
Reliable sources in the Ugandan legal profession claim that the man cleverly planned to pass off as his girlfriend during the legal exams.
Although his motivation for the trick is still unknown, it is clear that he devised a well-thought-out plan to take advantage of the low security precautions in place during exam sessions.
Although the girlfriend’s identity has not yet been revealed, it is assumed that she was a prospective law student who was having trouble passing the tests on her own merit.
And instead of looking for real help and support, she and her lover made the terrible decision to act dishonestly, which ultimately brought about their failure.
