George William Eronda a senior 4 student who was expelled by Namilyango College on grounds of misbehaving is asking the Mukono court to arrest the head teacher of the school after he was denied access to the examination room to sit for his Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE)
The headmaster, Mr Constantine Mpuuga Sajjabi on Monday defied a court order secured by George William Eronda who had been expelled and allegedly blocked from siting his Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) exams.
Through his lawyers, Eronda on Tuesday filed an application seeking arrest warrants against Mr Ssajabi and the school’s board chairman, Mr Richard Kayondo for allegedly defying a court order issued by Mukono High Court deputy registrar Ms Harriet Nalukwago.
The court order was to allow the 18-year-old student sit for the exams which started on Monday, October 14, 2019. Eronda missed the physics paper and those of Tuesday and Wednesday.
“We served them a court order but now we have filed an application of warrant of arrest against the head teacher and the chairman board of governors,” Eronda’s lawyer, Mr George Kintu said.
After receiving their application on Tuesday afternoon, Ms Nalukwago advised the student to serve the respondents (head teacher and board chair) by October 16, 2019 before she scheduled the case at 2pm for hearing.
On September 26, Eronda and his father Mr Wilberforce Eronda Wandera sued the Board of governors for the unfair circumstances under which the former was expelled from the school.
On October 10, the Deputy Registrar Mukono High Court, Harriet Ssali Nalukwago ruled that the
school grants the student access to sit his UCE exams from the school, noting that the school did not follow the right procedure in dismissing him.
