A student who prefers anonymity has cried foul after the Islamic University in Uganda (IUIU) suspended him with other 22 students on allegations of engaging in sexual relationships contrary to the university regulations.
The list on which he is part of includes finalists, who were about to sit for their examinations.
According to the letter dated April 14, 2018, the students were reportedly found in the dark corners on different occasions engaging in love affairs before they were suspended for one year.
The aggrieved revealed to Daily Monitor how he felt; saying disciplinary committee was too harsh in its judgment particularly on him because he committed the crimes two years ago.
He says he was unaware of the rules and consumed alcohol two years ago and was made to write hundred apologies to which he affixed his passport size photograph and was asked to pin on all notice boards at the campus.
“I find it so astonishing that committee retrieved an offence I committed two years ago when I had just joined the campus but apart from that, they were too harsh,”
All the students have since challenged the university decision to suspend them and are waiting for the institutions verdict.
IUIU – governed by sharia – is a Muslim founded multi- campus university offering courses at certificate, diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
