A Makerere University lecturer in Uganda was on Tuesday suspended for allegedly sexually assaulting a Kenyan female student.
Kisuze Edward, a senior administrative assistant in the academic registrar’s department, was suspended for assaulting Racheal Njeri.
Photos allegedly leaked on social media sites by the victim showed her being molested by the alleged culprit in an office.
A suspension letter signed by acting Vice-Chancellor Prof William Bazeyo said Edward will be entitled to half pay during the entire period of investigation.
He said the university management was not satisfied by his explanation on what transpired between him and the student.
“You are strongly advised to desist from any access to Senate Building premises and or interactions with students of Makerere University until investigations are completed,” Bazeyo said.
“You are further required to hand over all university property that may be in your possession,” he added.
