Makerere University Snr Official Edward Kisuze has been suspended by University authorities following strong accusations that he sexually harassed a student by the names of Njoro Njeri Rachael.
Kisuze a senior administrative assistant in the Academic Registrar’s Department was pictured fixing his face in-between the legs of Njoro whose pants were already lowered, a photo that has gone viral all over social media.
In a letter dated April 17, 2018, which has also been posted on the university’s Twitter page, the Acting Vice Chancellor, Professor William Bazeyo said “Kisuze” had been “suspended from university service on half pay with immediate effect to allow a smooth investigation into allegations” that he harassed the student on Tuesday at his office at Senate Building.

Prof Bazeyo’s letter to Kisuze says,
“I hereby suspend you from university service on half pay with immediate effect to allow a smooth investigation into the matter. You are strongly advised to desist from any access to the senate building premises and interactions with students of Makerere University until investigations are completed.”
Well this brings us to a question that if Kisuze is found guilty, will the University authorities revoke the academic papers of Njoro Njeri Racheal?
But as per now Kisuze has been arrested and as Police’s investigations go ahead, he will be spending these cold night behind the bars.
