A Kampala lawyer representing Kawempe Muslim School has asked the High Court to review its orders forcing the school to allow cheating students sit for the O’Level examinations at the school premises.
Joseph Balikuddembe told Justice Remmy Kasule that the school’s main concern is to maintain discipline among students. He also said the school would want to avoid double standards and anarchism.
Hussein Kaseekende and three other students were demoted after being allegedly caught cheating the school’s internal examinations last term.
However, they were given an option to sit for their S 4 final examinations elsewhere if they did not want to repeat the class, in accordance with the school rules and regulations to which all parents and teachers are signatories.
Kaseekende, through his father Abubaker gayinamungu Kaseekende, filed a suit in the High Court and sought a temporary injunction restraining the school from stopping them from sitting the examinations at its premises.
Balikuddembe argued that forcing the school to allow the students sit for their examinations at the premises would undermine the school’s authority to enforce its rules and regulations.
The O’Level examinations started on October 16.
