Govt to cancel degrees and diplomas of teachers who abuse and impregnate students
The government has revealed that it is working on a new law which will enable it cancel degrees and diplomas of teachers and lecturers who abuse students. The government wants to implement more deterrent measures saying that imprisonment and expulsion from work were not enough, to deter the abuse of female students.
Deputy Minister of Higher and Tertiary Education, Science and Technology Development, Godfrey Gandawa said:
We are in the process of crafting a new law for higher and tertiary education. All higher and tertiary education institutions, teachers’ colleges, polytechnics and universities, private or public will have the same law governing them. So in that same law, that is where we are putting deterrent measures to make sure that we curb such practices (abuse of learners). It’s actually a comprehensive Act.Feedback
So we feel that once this policy is done it will control malpractices. Even in lecturers we also have this problem where they are asking for sexual favours from female students for pass marks. All that is going to be included in that Act.
