He added that 182 trainees, were discontinued after though verification of their academic documents.
“Upon thorough scrutiny, they were found with forged documents, others had less than 4 credits, failures in English other than the credit required, failure in Mathematics other than the pass required, while others were found to be overaged, which automatically ruled them out of the training. All the forged academic documents were confiscated and exhibited at Masindi CPS, where investigations were instituted” he said.
