Prof. Ddumba also said that he is not solely responsible for the drastic decision to suspend the students.
“I followed the right procedure to take this decision. I got those names from the Dean of Students and I acted accordingly with regards to the University Rules and Regulations,” Ddumba said
This followed a demonstration that was organised by students requesting to have their colleagues reinstated back to the University and the decision to suspend them rescinded.
Ddumba further said that from the Guild President’s notice, he acknowledges that the right procedure might not have been followed while suspending the students and he will constitute a committee of investigation into the matter. He added that what is quite obvious is that the damages will be compensated and there is no doubt about that before stressing that the suspension of the students has been revoked with immediate effect.
