Kenya/Uganda: Makerere University Law graduates face degree scum probe

September 14, 2017

Makerere University

Law students who graduated from Makerere University will be required to produce certified academic papers before enrolling for this year’s bar examinations in Kenya. The Council of Legal Education (CLE) Thursday released a notice to the law students after reports that the degree scam is being investigated by Uganda’s oldest and biggest university. Makerere is investigating degrees awarded since 2011 and this is likely to affect many Kenyans who studied at the university. Dr Damalie Naggitta-Musoke, the former dean of the School of Law at Makerere, is leading a team that is auditing results. Ugandan sources said up to 88 lecturers, administrators from the senate, and students named in the marks scam are being investigated. It emerged that the staff changed students’ marks at an average Kenyan fee of Sh8,000 and Sh40,000 million per unit depending on the course and status of the student. Back home, the ripple effect of the audit has started to bite, with law students being the first casualties.
