They are University Secretary Sam Akorimo, the Academic Registrar Rose Bwiire, Dean of Students Winfred Bugga, Dean Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences Specilino Adullah and Dean Faculty of Engineering, Dr Daudi Mugisha.

Others are Head Department Mechanical And Production Engineering Francis Didongo, Head Department of Sociology Dr. Deborah Mulumba, Senior Procurement Officer Richard Muwangunzi, the university Estates manager Ambrose Arija and deputy Registrar Admissions Christine Kyayonka.

According to the council, these persons will be arrested on sight if they step at the campus before completion of investigations.

The decision takes immediate effect.

Lecturers argue that they want the VC to resign since he is head of the administration that has reportedly messed up the campus.

Security remains tight with over 300 cops deployed to maintain law and order.

Students had threatened to join the lecturers’ strike which kicked off on Monday to pressurize Ndege to quit.

Students today also decided to strike over the increment of retake dues from Shs20,000 to Shs150,000.

The lecturers on Friday vowed not return to work until Ndege steps down to pave way for investigations.

The strike comes just a fortnight when students returned from holidays.

Previous strikes at the explosive institution have left property worth millions of shillings destroyed.

Public Relations Officer Lawrence Madete on Friday said the lecturers were “dreaming” if they were optimistic that Omoro would step down.

“The Vice Chancellor cannot resign basing on falsehoods and theories,” said Madete.

The lecturers had earlier asked for a 200% salary increment but the University Council only managed to give in to a 16% rise.

Lecturers said they had evidence to pin Ndege in corruption tendencies, abuse office and mismanagement of the University.
