Kampala- Kyambogo University administration has finally handed over crucial documents which the Inspectorate of Government says had delayed the ongoing investigations into the alleged mismanagement and corruption at the institution.
Prof Elly Katunguka, the acting vice chancellor, said the issues raised by the IGG had been addressed and his staff are cooperating with the investigations team.
“It is not true that the university officers refused to cooperate,” Prof Katunguka said in an email to this newspaper yesterday.

Mr David Makumbi, who heads the Kyambogo University investigations, recently accused the university top management of concealing some vital information needed in the investigations.
“As our investigations progress, we have noted reluctance on the part of some University staff to provide information when approached by our investigators,” Mr Makumbi’s letter to Prof Katunguka on April 17, reads in part.

Some of the documents cited as inaccessible are those in offices of top managers like the acting vice chancellor, university secretary, deputy university secretary, director human resource, academic registrar, deputy academic registrars and senior legal officer -something the investigators say is likely to further delay their investigations.

IGG spokesperson Munira Ali confirmed the inspectorate received the documents but expressed concern that the delay will affect the set timetable for the investigations. which were ordered by Parliament.
