Makerere University has suspended Vincent Ssajjabi, Medard Twinobuhungiro and Jackson Sekiryango for allegedly asking female students for sexual favours.
Ssajjabi, an assistant lecturer in the School of Economics, Twinobuhungiro, an assistant lecturer in the School of Business and Sekiryango from School of Languages, Literature and Communication were suspended by the vice-chancellor Barnabas Nawangwe this week.
Twinobuhungiro was recorded by his student demanding sex or else he fails her in an upcoming exam.
The trio join a long list of lecturers who have sought sex-for-marks at the country’s oldest institution of higher learning.
These include Swizen Kyomuhendo, a senior lecturer in the department of Social Work and Social Administration who was sacked in December last year after he was found guilty of sexually harassing his female student.
Others are Brian Musaga, a lecturer in the School of Statistics and Planning who was accused by six female students of sexually harassing and assaulting them in 2017.
That same year, two female students of medicine and surgery reported cases of harassment by some lecturers while last year Edward Kisuze, an officer in the Academic Registrar’s department, was arrested after he allegedly abused a former female student while she was seeking certification of her academic documents.
