Makerere University Staff Expelled, Demoted Over Forging Marks

Those dismissed are; the deputy registrar of the College of Health Sciences, Ms Fatuma Nakatudde, and the college’s senior administrative assistant, Mr Paul Apunyo.

The dean of the School of Health Sciences, Dr Rose Chalo Nabirye and Dr Isaac Okullo, the deputy principal of the College of Health Sciences have also been demoted over failure to manage the college and prevent the fraud.
The resolution to dismiss and demote the staff was made by the Appointments Board of the University at its 575th meeting held on October 5.

The university 69th graduation ceremony is slated for January next year.

According to the University Vice Chancellor, Prof Barnabas Nawangwe the degrees of the alleged students shall be recalled to act as an example to future violators.

“Those students will certainly have their degrees recalled but they have a right to appeal. This is a warning to all those who handle students’ marks, that fraud will not be tolerated,” Pro Nawangwe said.

“The particulars of these complaints are that you, Paul Apunyo, while employed as a senior administrative assistant in the College of Health Science, Makerere University, unlawfully, without authority entered the names of Rogers Mushabe and Alex Madile into the examination result system, which is likely to cause financial loss to the university,” the human resource (HR) letter to Mr Apunyo reads, in part.
