The past week around Mukono based Christian university hasn’t been the normal smoothing calm days because many students are snared in fear of a possible mayhem around the university.
After social media being awash with rumors of the alleged dismissal of the university’s Dean Of Students Affairs, Rev. Tweheyo Milton (Uncle) under unclear circumstances, vibrant student politicians affiliated to past Guilds and alumni associations have tasked the university Vice Chancellor, Rev Ssenyonyi for a formal communication about Rev. Tweheyo’s departure from the university.
However since the VC, Rev Ssenyonyi is currently away for pastoral duty and work, the university’s Public Relations office led by Joseph Basoga as stipulated by law yesterday stepped in with an official address to the entire student community as per the current situation.
”The vice chancellor will be back from a working trip next week on Friday and I’m aware that he will make a formal statement on this Issue.” Joseph Basoga said. Mr Basoga also noted that the Vice Chancellor was also cautiously & closely following the debate.
After the leaking of DOSA’s controversial story, the public has tenaciously asked for Rev. Milton’s quote or say in this matter but while speaking to Campus Bee, Mr Basoga stated that no staff member is allowed to speak to the press apart from the vice-chancellor and the public relations office.
Albeit Mr Basoga stated that, Rev. Milton is a gentle, peace-loving and feelingly humble man. I’m sure and yes I keep sharing with him as a friend and mentor. He deserves a bit of privacy.
Mr Basoga finally asked the students to keep calm as all issues can be settled amicably.
“I respect the freedom of speech and thank you from deep down my heart for the mature debate and Christian concern. Let keep exchanging ideas, but let also do it in the usual UCU Mature way of Christian sharing. Be blessed.” Mr Basoga wrote.
Other feeble stories making rounds around the university are about the alleged grilling of the university newspaper, The Standard Chief Editor Papa Opae about Rev Tweheyo departure story. It’s alleged that Papa was summoned and ordered to flash the DOSA story down the drain. We contacted Papa who refuted all rumors in media about him terming them as hogwash.
“Nobody has summoned anybody and there is nothing like grilling the editors. The Standard is an independent and professional newspaper and we don’t report and publish stories based on rumors whoever originated the idea of the staff being grilled should offer Campus Bee full details.” The Standard Chief Editor, Papa noted.
