Fagil Mandy, the Chairman of the Uganda National Examinations Board has resigned.
His resignation comes days after Ugandan president, Yoweri Museveni renewed the contract of the body’s Secretary, Mathew Bukenya.
The controversial educationist has been UNEB chairman since July 2012.
His reign at the education body has been marred by unease and friction with Mathew Bukenya.
Two days ago, Mathew Bukenya was accorded members of the National Police to protect him at the body’s Ntinda offices when he learnt that Fagil Mandy was planning to evict the former from office forcefully.
Last month, the country’s Inspector General of Government, Ms Irene Mulyagonja in a report, ordered UNEB to conduct fresh interviews for its executive secretary, saying the earlier process was interfered with.
She also accused Fagil Mandy of interfering with the recruitment of the executive secretary.
