The High Court in Kampala recently dismissed an application seeking to block the 17th graduation ceremony of Kyambogo University.

The decision comes from an application filed on September 14, 2021 by 45 students who sought a halt to the graduation ceremony fixed for September 21‐23 2021 because their names were missing from the list of graduands.

Students, led by Keneth Masereka stated that they had successfully pursued different courses at Kyambogo University and passed all the subjects undertaken according to the information on their respective student portals run and managed by the University. However, their names were missing from the lists that were released through the different department heads.

However, they asked the court to grant them an interim injunction restraining the University from holding its 17th graduation ceremony in order to save them from suffering irreparable damages. But their application was dismissed by Principal Judge Dr Flavian Zeija on grounds that the affidavit supporting it was not signed before a Commissioner of Oaths.

The Court heard that the affidavit sworn by Moses Arupei, a student of Oil and Gas Production was drafted from Kyambogo University by Joel and Cox Advocates and signed from Twed Towers, the building that houses the High Court Civil Division. The affidavit bore a stamp by Raymond Owakukiroru as the Commissioner of Oaths.

The Kyambogo University lawyers led by Cyrus Baguma objected to it on grounds that it was incurably defective since it was not sworn and signed before the Commissioner of Oaths as required under the law. Baguma had earlier on called Arupei and confirmed that the affidavit was signed from Twed Towers.

Justice Zeija accordingly dismissed the application said that there is a tendency for lawyers to draft affidavits and taking them to their clients for signing when actually they have not followed the required procedure of appearing before the Commissioner of Oaths.

Meanwhile following the reaction from the university vice Chancellor, Katunguka responding to the media welcomed the decision saying the graduation for 9,521 students will now proceed without interruption and when the students also sort the individual-based issues they will also be provided with transcripts as they agreed before and some accepted.

"It's possible that some students with results missed out graduation with either provided their information late, meaning Senate wouldn't manage to verify their results, some students has retake, some change their registration numbers, some finished late after the Senate." Adding that those who wish to antagonize the graduation to distance them selves and follow the university protocol failure to do so security is ready to answer them and on top of that the three days graduation process the university is out bound to none invite.
