A male teacher and House Master sodomized a Senior Six student at King’s College Budo, the school’s head master has reportedly confirmed as the homosexuality saga at the top Ugandan education institution took a new twist.
While King’s College Budo had dismissed the allegations by the student and even suspended him for claiming that the Ghana House Master had sodomized him, the school later conducted serious investigations and found out that the male student was right and that the teacher had indeed sodomized him.
But the college said the suspension was in error and that there wasn’t sufficient information to pin the male teacher at the time of suspending the student.
“On behalf of the Management, King’s College Budo, I wish to clarify on the ongoing social media frenzy about the allegations levelled against our male teacher, and Ghana house master by the purported mother to our former student in senior six, 2022,” said John Fredrick (Fred) Kazibwe, the Budo Headmaster, in a statement attributed to him.
“Whereas we registered a sodomy complaint by the said student had erroneously suspended him, we later conducted thorough investigations and established more facts.”
The school has since apologized to the parent and the Budo College community for the incident. “Accordingly an apology was conveyed to the parent, with regret. We apologize to all Budonians and Ugandans in general for the unfortunate incident,” said HM Kazibwe.
The school went on to note that the teacher will be punished in accordance with the laws of Uganda and also revealed what it would do to prevent such evil acts from happening once again.
“The teacher is facing a disciplinary process and thereafter, appropriate action will be taken in line with public service standing orders,” Kazibwe added in his January 17 2023 statement.
“The college is undertaking infrastructure developments, including installing more CCTV cameras around all teachers’ quarters, dormitories and entire estate to minimize recurrence of such, related or undesired actions.”
