48 Students of Bishop Stuart University in Mbarara might face being ejected for an array of indiscipline related cases that range from examination malpractices to spending their tuition fees on sports betting.
The university vice chancellor Prof. Maudah Kamatenesi opened up on the list of students which has already been pinned on notice boards, approved saying that their fate will soon be determined.
Speaking at a press conference she called at the university campus, the VC said many of these had been found to have blown their own tuition on gambling.
The university requires students to have paid half the tuition in the first three weeks and has a surcharge of 50,000 for late payment.
Some other students on the list are being accused of duplicating other students’ examination fees in order to be able to sit for exams.
The group according to the VC has since been summoned on 19th and 22nd to present their defense before the University Council which will pronounce it’s the final decision.
Commenting on the matter, the university guild president Denis Tumuramye said that being mature, the students who were caught in the wrong ought to bear the consequences.
Professor Kamatenesi also told press that some of the cases were police related and most of the students were first arrested and interrogated.
Kamatenesi told journalists that the university council basing on the campus code of ethics will determine their fate which includes total dismissal.
“For a Christian university like Bishop Stuart we don’t joke with indisciplined students; some of these will most likely face dismissal and others may be suspended” she stated
