Buganda Road Chief Magistrate, James Ereemye Mawanda has granted bail to Edward Kisuze, the Makerere University Assistant Administrator who was recently charged with attempted rape and indecent assault on Rachel Njeri Njoroge, a former student.
The accused, Edward Kisuze, a university registrar at the College of Computing and Information Science appeared in a session presided over by the chief magistrate Mr James Ereemye who granted him cash bail of Shs2m.
Before being granted bail, Viola Tusingwire, the state prosecutor objected to Kisuze’s application on several grounds that the investigations into the matter are not yet completed.
Mawanda has also directed prosecution to summon witnesses to appear in court on May 28th 2018 for the hearing to start.
Kisuze was last month suspended from Makerere University by Professor Bazeyo to give room for investigations.
Prosecution contends that the unethical incident happened at Makerere University on April 13, 2018 when the graduate, Rachel Njoroge, showed up to certify her transcript and pick her recommendation letter. She was then referred to room 507 for help.
However, although the photo does not show Kisuze’s face, Prosecution alleges that the information availed by his victim pinned him since he has been occupying the said office.
According to police records Njoroge brokenly narrated the gruesome encounter with the registrar when she had gone to pick her transcript.
She stated that as she was looking through her transcript, the suspect hurriedly locked the office door and forcibly started romancing her.
