“There is no way an individual can put to ransom the entire institution; it is very clear that the majority of the staff of Kyambogo University cannot work and are not willing to continue offering their services alongside Prof. Ndiege,” noted Dr. Bwanika.

Dr. Bwanika also warned that if the government continues to force Ndiege back to the university, the performance of the institution will be compromised and it is the students who are the sole losers in the whole saga.

“If government still has interests in the services of Prof. Ndiege, they should create for him another room elsewhere but leave Kyambogo University to effectively carry on its operations,” he added.

Bwanika further blamed government for threatening to sack lecturers who are currently on a strike protesting the return of Prof. Ndiege to the higher institution of learning.

This development comes at a time when the government has given the wrangling Kyambogo University Lecturers only four days to return to work or face consequences of absconding from duty.

The campus was shut down on Tuesday following the escalating tensions and violence that rocked the once prestigious higher institution of learning.

Ndiege was on suspension since April 2012. He is accused of mismanaging the institution and undermining staff. He had been the vice chancellor for four years from January 2009.

On November 8, 2012, Ndiege challenged his sacking in the High court, arguing that the University Council’s decision was unfair since the probe committee into the alleged university mismanagement had cleared him.

Justice Wilson Masalu Musene of Nakawa High Court overturned the University Council’s decision of suspending Prof. Ndiege and ordered his return to the University. Ndiege’s contract ends in 2014.
