The file in which an administrator at Makerere university is alleged to have raped a former student, has been sent to the Directorate of Public Prosecution for perusal.

Edward Kisuze a senior administrator in the office of the academic registrar is accused to have sexually assaulted Njoroge Rachel Njeri in his office.

According to the Kampala metropolitan Police spokesperson Luke Owoyesigyire, the file was sent to the DPP's office over the weekend. Owoyesigyire, says that police has compiled all that they have on the case and is now waiting for guidance from the State Attorney.

The investigators based the case on a statement by Njoroge who is the complainant and a picture she is believed to have taken in Kisuze's office.

Apart from the statements of Njoroge and Kisuze, police has failed to find any other witnesses to support the case.

The pictorial evidence provided by Njoroge Rachel has also been added on the file.

Police also attached messages between Njoroge and Kisuze which were provided by the complainant.

On Tuesday last week, Njoroge reported a case of rape against Kisuze at Makerere University Police station.

In her statement, Njoroge alleges that Kisuze repeatedly forced her into having sexual intercourse as she tried to get her academic transcript from the Academic Registrars office.

However, Kisuze told police that he had been in a voluntary affair with Njoroge for a long time and thus could not have raped her.

Kisuze also denies being the person in the picture that was circulated on social media.

Kisuze who is still in detention at Wandegeya Police station was also suspended by the Makerere University Acting Vice Chancellor Prof William Bazeyo to allow investigations into the matter.

In a suspension letter dated April 17, 2018, Kisuze was first tasked to give an official response to the complaint but his response was unsatisfactory.

This is not the first time that a Makerere University staff has been accused of rape. In 2016, a 58-year old lecturer in the faculty of Natural Sciences has been detained on allegations that he raped a first year female student, who was residing in his garage. 

Dr Christopher Bakuneta has since been charged in court and is still on trial.
