Kenyan professor ousted from Ugandan University for fighting corruption

14 November 2013, 12:01 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - For the second week, lecturers at Uganda's second largest  public university, Kyambogo University, are on strike demanding the resignation of Kenyan Vice chancellor, Isaiah Ndiege.

They claim that Ndiege is not only arrogant an uncooperative, but also corrupt.

Ndiege, who was appointed three years ago, reportedly fell out with the lecturers after he introduced tough measures to fight graft at the University.

The lectures and students went on strike and he was forced to leave office. The University council sacked him but he went to court and was reinstated a few weeks ago after the court discovered that he was innocent.

It was later discovered that the lecturers were against Ndiege because he was fighting rampart corruption at the institution which included students conniving with University officials to swindle tuition fees, lecturers not marking exams, male lecturers taking advantage of female students and employment of unqualified staff.

Now the lectures are back on strike after Ndiege went back to his office. After staying idle for the last two weeks, the students have been engaging in running battles with riot police as they demand to go back to class.

Parliament has supported Ndiege and is calling for the sacking of all those against him.

The chairperson of the education committee of parliament, also Mityana woman MP, Sylvia Namabbidde, has advised government to temporally close down Kyambogo University in order to sort out the mess.

Namabidde said, ''Government has no option now for the University after the lecturers have failed to respect the government institution. Parliament investigated the allegations against Professor Ndiege and found them not strong, the matter was referred to the IGG and then finally to court which all found Professor Ndiege innocent.''

The legislator said that the government should close down the University and then let those who want to work re-apply for their jobs.

The MP said that investigations found out that those who did not want Ndiege to sort out the mess at the University are the ones fighting him.

Another MP, Mbabazi Betty, said that lecturers should not punish students because Ndiege's contract expires in January next year and may not be renewed.

Uganda's cabinet is reportedly trying to come up with the final decision on Kyambogo University.
