Sex for marks at Makerere University

14 April 2016, 12:37 Godfrey Olukya

Nairobi - Students at Makerere university have complained about lecturers who offer free marks in exchange  for sex with female students.

This  comes after one of the female students at the university was raped by a lecturer who is now facing court for his illegal act.The lecturer had reportedly offered to give her free marks in exchange for sex but she refused which made him rape her.

''It is common for lectures at Makerere to offer marks for sex.Many lazy girls who do not do course work and fail examinations end up passing after offering themselves to the lectures.'' said Jacqueline Nanono, a 2nd yr student of social science at Makerere university.

Aggrey Mukasa,a male student at the university said,''That habit is common and female students offered marks freely talk about.There is need to expose  such lecturers.They are making our university lose value.''

Apart from lecturers behaving so,there are also many cases of rape by fellow students.

The dean of the school of women and gender issues at Makerere university, professor Josephine Ahikire has called for students engagement in the fight against education sexualization at the country’s highest and oldest education institution.

In a symposium held at the women and gender school at Makerere last evening she said,'' A well structured system to handle issues of sexualization at the university should be strongly set up to help handle such cases.''

She also added on that  such cases have been happening at the university but have not been made public since the victims have chosen to stay silent.

 She as asked  student to be the rape preventers for the vice to be curbed down.

However, professor Maggie Kigozi said  this is a much bigger problem that called for feminists to fight aggressively e to create a safe environment for all students.
