Over 200 Kyambogo University Students whose names are missing on the forthcoming graduation list have petitioned the High Court seeking an injunction against the scheduled 17th Graduation Ceremony slated for the 21st of this month.
Through their lawyer Bwiire Ronald, the students are accusing the university of omitting their names from the published graduation booklet despite having done all their exams and passed and their names pinned on the University notice board.
Lawyer Bwiire says that they want Court to stop the upcoming Graduation ceremony until the University sorts out the graduation list so that all students who are eligible for graduation are not left behind.
He adds that the students must be give an opportunity to explain themselves, since evidence shows that they did pass their respective exams and some are due to graduate with first class.
Bwiire is accusing the University of failing to compile a proper graduation list and coming up with an incomplete list due to the university’s failure to do proper administration.
“My Client’s future will be affected especially when it comes to employment opportunities because they can not seek employment anywhere if they do not graduate” Lawyer Bwire stated.
He adds that the students had brought the matter before the University’s administration, but are now seeking Court intervention since the University declined to intervene.
He wants court to stop or issue an order restraining further arrangements regarding the coming graduation until the University compiles a proper list with all names of students who are eligible to graduate on the 21st of this month included.
