Kyambogo lecturers should act professionally
Posted Sunday, November 3 2013 at 00:00
Kyambogo University Council’s decision to respect the court’s ruling of reinstating vice chancellor Isaiah Omollo Ndiege should be hailed as an act of civilisation in addition to respecting the rule of law.
It is, however, very saddening to see lecturers continuing to resist Ndiege’s return. One wonders whether the lecturers have a personal vendetta against the VC. Is it possible that someone who is after his job is using the lecturers to achieve his goal or is there something more than meets the eye? Isn’t this the way former vice chancellor Prof Lutalo Bbosa was also chased away from the same university.
Is it also possible that Prof Ndiege is being witch-hunted for being a foreigner. But aren’t there so many Ugandan professionals working and holding big posts in universities abroad?
It’s indeed disheartening to see people of high caliber such as university lectures sinking too low and administering mob action against an innocent man.
These so-called lecturers should not hold the university and country at ransom.
