A senior four student who was denied access to the examination room at Namilyango College on grounds that he was expelled for allegedly misbehaving has asked court to issue arrest warrants for the school headmaster and board chairman.
The headmaster, Mr Constantine Mpuuga Sajjabi on Monday defied a court order secured by George William Eronda who had been expelled and allegedly blocked from siting his Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) exams.

Through his lawyers, Eronda on Tuesday filed an application seeking arrest warrants against Mr Ssajabi and the school’s board chairman, Mr Richard Kayondo for allegedly defying a court order issued by Mukono High Court deputy registrar Ms Harriet Nalukwago.
The court order was to allow the 18-year-old student sit for the exams which started on Monday, October 14, 2019.

“We served them a court order but now we have filed an application of warrant of arrest against the head teacher and the chairman board of governors,” Eronda’s lawyer, Mr George Kintu said.
After receiving their application on Tuesday afternoon, Ms Nalukwago advised the student to serve the respondents (head teacher and board chair) by October 16, 2019 before she scheduled the case at 2pm for hearing.

Today was the second day of UCE exams and this is the second day Eronda has missed his papers.
