Buganda Road Chief Magistrate’s Court has sentenced a former Makerere University senior administrative assistant Edward Kisuze to a fine of Shs4m or two years in prison for molesting a student.
Kisuze was then a registrar in the College of Computing and Information Science.
He was convicted on the count of indecent assault of Rachel Njoroge.
The chief magistrate, Miriam Akello, said there was overwhelming evidence from the prosecution that proved the case of indecent assault against Kisuze.
“The accused is hereby sentenced to a fine of Shs4m or in default serve two years in jail,” Akello ruled.
The magistrate, however, acquitted Kisuze of attempted rape.
Kisuze’s troubles started in 2018 after a photo circulated on social media where he was seen forcing Njoroge, a former student at the faculty, into a romantic act.
Njoroge had gone to pick her transcript after graduation.
Kisuze locked her up in his office and forcibly started romancing her.
The unethical incident happened at Makerere University on April 13, 2018 when Njoroge showed up to certify her transcript and pick her recommendation letter.
