Bukoba DC Samwel Kamote
DC Samwel Kamote said the college was bogus, asking its director David Adongo to reimburse over 27m/- to 50 students who were studying at the college. Mr Adongo was arrested last week, for allegedly obtaining a total of 27.4m/-, by false pretences and is set to be arraigned once investigations are complete.
Mr Kamote said investigations had proven that Mr Adongo was not authorised by the college to act on its behalf and that the institute lacked legal status as well. Acting Kagera Regional Police Commander ACP Vitus Mlolere, said a total of 50 students were registered at the college including 29 girls and 21 boys.
Several students complained that they had been cheated and were demanding their money back. Annajoyce Josephat (19) said she joined the college last year after paying 850,000/- in school fees. “We were shocked when we learnt the examinations we did were not from the the National Examination Council (NACTE) or from Vocational Education Training Authority (VETA).
They also said in the beginning they were given meals, but the service was stopped without any explanations.
