Students drag principal to police over transcripts

Four former students of Mulago Paramedics training school dragged their principal to police accusing him of receiving money by false pretense. The students are Godfrey Lubega, Gerald Mangwa, Joseph Kaddu, and Peter Senfuka. Trouble for Wilson Mugisha Rwandembo, the principal Mulago Paramedics training school started after the school failed to issue academic transcripts to over 300 students who completed their exams in 2008 and 2009.

As a result,4 students decided to drag Rwandembo to police to compel him to release their transcripts. Godfrey Lubega, who recorded a statement at Kampala Central Police Station, said that he lost his job with the International Disease Research Collaboration – IDRC after failing to provide his academic transcript.

The students claimed that they tried several times to seek redress from Rwandembo but nothing was done, which left them without employment. The students even filed a case in the High court hoping to get a speedy trial but nothing has come through.

Mugisha Rwandembo could not be reached for comment. Abara Mungu, Commissioner Business Technical and Vocation Training said they failed to release the results because of the court case filed by the students. Mungu said that the school wants the students to release the court case before they can receive their transcripts, which are ready.
