Julie Mukoda Zabwe, the Mayuge District Woman Member of Parliament has taken to Twitter complaints against Makerere University's delayed issuance of an academic transcript to her son.

Using her twitter handle @HonMukoda, the legislators asks Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, the University Vice Chancellor to intervene and reign in on what she calls the university's bureaucratic system.

According to the statement, the legislator's son Brian Kirya with registration number 13/U/25129, who graduated in February 2017 with a Bachelor of Development Studies, has been in a fruitless hunt for his transcript since.

“The system had recorded a wrong mark in one subject and he was given 47% instead of 67%,” the legislator says in Tweet posted on Monday.

She adds: “We were told of all bureaucracy we had to go through which we did. From the Development Studies department to the school dean who wrote to the university AR (Academic Registrar) on 14th of this month informing him of the error.”

Kirya is among the 14,897 students that graduated in February whose marks had been sent back to colleges for verification before issuance of transcripts.

The legislator is dismayed that up to today, nothing has been done according to her statement. “Please I kindly request your intervention in this case as soon as possible because my son has lost over 10 opportunities of jobs and three scholarships due to lack of a transcript.”

In his response via @ProfNawangwe, Prof. Nawangwe however said the university could not help because the complainant was a third party. He argues that the university doesn't consider third parties in handling academic matters.

“We would be glad to assist the affected student in this case. It's challenging when a university student him/herself fails to turn up to fix issues with us,” Prof. Nawangwe said.

Makerere University in July this year resumed issuing academic transcripts, almost four months after the online results system it uses to enter and store students' examination scores was closed due to alleged fraud.

Before, during and after the graduation ceremony in February, allegations were made of alteration of marks and smuggling of students onto the graduation list.

It later emerged that the university online system had been hacked into by some staff who altered grades. Some 53 names would later be deleted from the graduation list just hours to the start of the weeklong graduation ceremonies.

Later, some four administrative assistants in the office of Academic Registrar – head of ICT Mike Barongo, Dennis Mbabazi, Joyce Namusoke, and Christopher Ntwatwa were arrested.
