A total of 300 students from Kamuli Primary Teachers College have failed to sit for their final examinations after their principal failed to register them with Kyambogo University.
The students were shocked to be informed by authorities at Walugogo Primary Teachers College in Iganga that they were not eligible to sit for their final examinations at the centre.
The affected students later rushed to Iganga Central Police Station protesting the decision by their respective institutions to register them.
Michael Balituma the principal of Kamuli Primary Teachers College, when contacted declined to give a comment.
However, Rachael Magoola, the principal Walugogo Primary Teachers College said four colleges had earlier registered to sit for their final examinations at the centre.
Magoola, a veteran musician said the four institutions are Noor, Njeru and Busia Primary Teachers Colleges. The colleges have not acquired their own centres from Uganda National Examinations Board.
