In what has seemed to have been a heated debate, the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) has cleared the Law Development Centre (LDC) to conduct online classes.
A few weeks ago, the LDC had ensured continuity of their classes that had been affected by COVID 19, and introduced online studies via digital platforms like ZOOM.
However, following complaints raised by some elements (from within the students community and without), the government was moved, and the Ministry of Education and Sports suspended the classes, including banning the same from all the other institutions of learning that had resorted to online studying.
Reality continues to hit and that the end of the COVID 19 times are uncertain.
By later dated 6th August, 2020, the NCHE wrote to the LDC indicating that they have approved the online classes that had earlier on been banned.
“Please arrange to immediately resume the online learning for Bar Course that had been suspended” reads the letter in part.
The letter continues to maintain that the relevant guidelines that the LDC had issued will continue to apply.
The authenticity of the letter is uncertain, as there is no sender, or official seals from either the LDC or the NCHE, however, Campus Bee has read an email from one of the professional advisers (PA) of LDC, alias lecturers, where the students have been assigned work for the following week.
“Welcome back from your extended break. Please find attached workshops for next week”, reads an email from Tom Mbalinda, a PA and the head Commercial department at the Centre.
The letter was addressed to the Director LDC and also CC-ed to the Chairperson Management Committee, Members Management Committee, Deputy Director LDC, Academic Registrar, Deputy Head Bar Course, Lecturers Bar Course and the Guild Presidents of the different campuses.
