The Gulu University Dean of Students has been interdicted. Last week Christopher Mutwale Mpora was remanded to Gulu Central Prison on allegations of theft.
Mpora was accused of theft of money, forgery and uttering a false document. It is alleged that on June 15 2020, at Centenary Bank Gulu Branch he fraudulently withdrew 3.5 Million Shillings in the names of Goma Oil Ginnery. The money belonged to Mildred Anena Alou, his business partner.
In a letter dated April 6 signed by the University Secretary, Mpora’s interdiction is in line with section 14 of Gulu University Human Resource Manual of 2017 that requires an employee of the University to behave and act appropriately at all time with integrity and to protect the university’s image before the public.
James Ojok Onono, the Gulu University Deputy Spokesperson says that the interdiction which will last for six months is to allow Mpora to settle his issue as an individual since the offences he has been accused of has nothing to do with Gulu University.
According to Onono, after settling the matters before the court, the Gulu University Management will decide on Mpora’s fate. He adds that Mpora has been directed to return all the university’s property.
Mpora who pleaded not guilty for the three offences was remanded to Gulu Central Prison by Christine Turibamwe, the Gulu Grade One Magistrate till April 15th when he will again appear before the court.
