Police yesterday searched the office of the assistant bursar of Kyambogo University to gather evidence that will link him to the tuition fees scandal at the institution.
The exercise went on amid tight security and it was difficult to tell what had been discovered from the office. The suspect has been in police custody since Saturday.
We however learned from one detective that a kitchen attendant, was found with Shs120 million on his personal account yet he earns Shs 476,711 monthly. The detective said their preliminary investigations had shown that the same staff is sometimes assigned the role of office attendant,and he has been issuing fake cash receipts to students.
The investigations into the fraud allegations started last week after more than 2,000 students were listed as tuition fees defaulters, yet they claimed to have paid the fees.
