The Uganda National Teacher’s Union (Unatu) has spoken out on claims that fallen educationist Prof Lawrence Mukiibi had sexual affairs with his female students and fathered children with them.
Prof Mukiibi, proprietor of St Lawrence Schools and Colleges, passed on on May 28 and was buried on June 02.
At his funeral, scores of children sired with his students were presented alongside their mothers.
According to Unatu secretary general James Tweheyo, the claims and reports pinning the fallen educationist point to unethical and unprofessional behaviour.
According to Unatu secretary general James Tweheyo, says it is unethical and professionally
“I will say that as an institution, that it is wrong for somebody entrusted with the responsibility of taking care of children to be the one to lead them into temptation,” Tweheyo said.
“That is a very a clear position. It is wrong, it is not ethical, it is not professional, it is even religiously wrong. So, we condemn it to the highest level of it.”
Tweheyo also prayed that God forgives Mukiibi if he indeed ‘used’ his students.
“The other day, the newspapers and everybody have been hyping Prof Mukiibi. But let me tell you, Mukiibi could have had his better side, but if it is true that he fathered all those children, from the learners he was supposed to take care of, it is wrong, it is ethically wrong, it is morally wrong, it is professionally wrong and it is wrong. We should condemn it and probably pray to God to forgive him.”
