Exclusive: Uganda Martyrs University In Fake Degrees Scandal

By Raymond Mushabe

In January this year 2017, I filed a complaint with the Executive Director National Council for Higher Education against Uganda Martyrs University Nyamitanga Campus for awarding fake Transcripts to graduates of Uganda Martyrs University Nyamitanga Campus -Mbarara. In April 2017, Uganda martyrs University recalled all the irregularly awarded transcripts to graduates of Nyamitanga Campus with a promise to re issue authentic transcripts.

It is saddening to learn that yet again, Uganda Martyrs University has for the third time reissued fake transcripts to graduates of Uganda Martyrs University Nyamitanga campus, the same students whose transcripts it had recalled in April this year. I made a physical visit to National Council for Higher Education and a search in their records indicated that Uganda Martyrs University Nyamitanga Campus was neither an accredited campus of Uganda Martyrs University, nor an accredited institution of higher learning.

Shockingly, National Council for Higher Education does not have any single record relating to the existence of Uganda Martyrs University Nyamitanga Campus. It baffles my mind that The highly studied and very religious Vice Chancellor of Uganda Martyrs University has insisted on Indicating the name of Nyamitanga campus that is non existent, non accredited and not recognised by National Council for Higher Education as an institution of higher learning on the transcripts of graduates of Uganda Martyrs University Nyamitanga Campus!

Today, I begin the process of petitioning the Ministry of Education and the Ugandan Parliament against National Council for Higher Education for allowing this madness to continue occurring under their watch, and against Uganda Martyrs University for carelessly risking the education career of students at Nyamitanga Campus. I call Upon all students of good conscience, of Uganda martyrs University Nyamitanga Campus, public opinion leaders, civil society organisations, all media houses and parents who pay high fees at Uganda martyrs University Nyamitanga Campus to join me in safeguarding the Education career of Ugandan Citizens!. ENOUGH OF THIS MADNESS AND DOUBLE STANDARDS!!!

Editor’s Note: Mushabe is the former Guild President of the Nyamitanga Campus
