MPs said a fresh probe should be instituted to investigate cases of corruption, irregular admissions and awarding of marks, irregular appointments hence incompetent staff, irregular procurement practices, nepotism and indiscipline and poor or lack of action on indiscipline cases.

Others cases include financial mismanagement, fraudulent fees payment, weak administration or lack of cohesion, irregular allocation of University land, examination leakages and selling of exams, altering examination results and use of university facilities for personal gain.

During the stormy debate, Presidency Minister Hon. Frank Tumwebaze decried politicking in University management.

He called for tough penalties against staff who block Vice Chancellors from performing their due duties.

He proposed amendment to the Universities and Tertiary Institutions Act to empower the Education Ministry to have an oversight role over all Universities.

Earlier, MP Ssegona had tabled a letter from Kyambogo University Council dated November 2nd, 2012 that confirmed the dismissal of Prof. Ndiege from office “in public interest.”

However, Vice President Edward Ssekandi took on MP Ssegona, asking Parliament not to believe rumors of the Council decision on the fate of Prof. Ndiege.
