Court Releases Makerere Administrator Accused of Sexually Harassing Kenyan Student
'Sexually Assaulted Kenyan Student' in Court as Makerere Administrator is Released
Buganda Road Court has granted bail to Makerere administrator Edward Kisuze, accused of sexually harassing a Kenyan female student.
Chief Magistrate James Mawanda Eremye released Kisuze about three weeks since his arrest on April 13.
Kisuze pleaded guilty to the charges of sexually assaulting the student after a photo showing him forcing himself on the student in Senate Building’s Room 507 emerged.
Court heard that Kisuze was a man of reputation, being a staff of a reputable university and head of laity at his church.
Mawanda granted Kisuze a Shs 2m cash bail despite protests from prosecution which had assured court investigations into the matter were complete.
Kisuze’s three sureties signed a Shs 10m bond.
Kisuze and his lawyers are expected to look through the evidence gathered by prosecution ahead of commencement of hearing of the case on May 28.
Meanwhile, the ‘sexually assaulted student’, Racheal Njoroge Njeri, was in court.
