We demand that government investigates the allegations of sexual abuse of young women and girls by the late school principal of St Lawrence schools

A group of women MPs have demanded for an investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct of the fallen educationist, Prof Lawrence Mukiibi.
Addressing a news conference on Thursday at Parliament, Uganda Women's Parliamentary Association (UWOPA), chairperson, Monica Amoding said a committee should be instituted to look into the welfare of the children left behind by the late.
“We demand that government investigates the allegations of sexual abuse of young women and girls by the late school principal of St Lawrence schools,” Amonding who was flanked by officials from Center for Domestic Violence Prevention (CEDOVIP) said.
The proprietor of St. Lawrence schools and university died two weeks ago aged 69.
However, moments after his burial, news of his alleged sexual perversions started trickling in after it emerged that he had sired more than 70 children with multiple women.
There have been allegations on social media that among the dozens of those children were mothered by his students.
Last week, UNATU general secretary, James Tweheyo, said Mukiibi’s actions are a disgrace to the sector and the late educationist’s actions should be condemned in the strongest terms.
“It is professionally wrong for a teacher to have sexual relations or at worst sire children with his students, because apart from being unethical, the public, parents and fellow teachers lose trust in such a teacher," said Tweheyo.
“If it is true he (Mukiibi) was having sexual relations with students, we highly condemn it. It is ethically, professionally, and morally wrong.
