Makerere University Vice Chancellor, Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, has suspended three lecturers for allegedly sexually harassing female students.
Vincent Ssajjabi, an assistant lecturer in the School of Economics, Medard Twinobuhungiro, an assistant lecturer in the School of Business and Jackson Sekiryango from School of Languages, Literature and Communication are the lecturers who have been given their suspension letters.
Their suspension comes after the university commissioned an investigation into the continued reports of sexual harrassment by the three. The reports were filed by female students who alleged that the three lecturers were engaged in a sex for marks scheme. The reports also stated that the lecturers were intentionally failing the students who rejected their sexual advances.
In one of the reports, assistant lecturer Twinobuhungiro was recorded by his student demanding sex or else he sets a hard exam paper that will make her fail. The university decided to take action after the lecturers were found culpable.
