This comes to clarify the ongoing social media false allegations about the Vice-Chancellor awarding a wrong Ph.D. to the wrong person. This article has appeared before in the press and we wish to share the Press release given at the time
Attention: Everyone has a right to write whatever they may wish to, but dragging MUST’s reputation to the mud is uncalled for, let us be mindful of the damages we cause to the growth of the institution, and also to individuals and their families.

On 13th July 2020, Campus Bee published a news article on their website whose title I can’t disclose in this email write-up because I am not a promoter of the said article. There is a very big mismatch between the article’s title and its body or content. Unfortunately, in the same article, my name appears in it without my consent because I never had an interview with the publisher. When you carefully read and analyze the article’s title, it is indirectly attacking the families of the victims and it has too many consequences and side effects on the victims’ families. Our old petition was strictly focused on academic issues. Please I want to distance myself from anyone or group that undermines family values. Dr. Kawuma Simon Ag.Chairperson-MUSTASA
