The 16th Kyambogo University is commencing this week from 11th to 13th December. The long awaited graduation lists went out on different notice boards within the university.
All graduands were panicky as they checked their names out from the different faculty noticeboards to find out if their names were confirmed for graduation. To some however, it was their bad omen day. They couldn’t find their names on the list however much they traced the lines.
“I did everything they needed to be on the graduation list but I can’t believe that I missed out!” Lamented one student from the faculty of engineering.
“I had informed all my parents and village mates to escort me and now I don’t know how to go back to the village!” He said sadly.
This gentleman whose names have been undisclosed due to his request says that when his name appeared on the provisional list and he settled down and started planning how to celebrate his unforgettable graduation but it hit him hard when the final list came out with his name missing. He says that there was a mistake in uploading his results on the final list and he has tried to contact the lecturer concerned but all in vain.
There are more reports of many students who missed out on the graduation list yet they had fulfilled all the requirements.
They blame the new student portal (AIMS) claiming that it distorts a lot of information which cannot be corrected in a short time.
Our calls to the powers that be at Kyambogo University to inquire about the allegations by some of the students went unanswered and we could not get a comment from them.
The Bee will be strolling around to give you all the bites about the 16th Kyambogo University graduation.
