Former students of Kibuli Senior Secondary School have asked the school management to retire the head teacher at the heart of sexual abuse allegations.
Hajj Ali Mugagga, who is on forced leave, is currently being investigated by the Education ministry for allegedly sexually abusing his students following a Facebook exposé by Ronald Egesa.
However, Kibuli Old Students Association (KOSA) has urged the school board of governors to retire the embattled head teacher to protect the image of the school, which they said has been tainted by the allegations.
“It pains us as former students and parents. We want action to be taken to protect the moral fabric of the school and to protect the girl-children, especially those from humble backgrounds,” the statement read by Abasi Agaba, the KOSA chairman, reads in part.
Among the allegations raised by Egesa, who calls himself a private investigator, against Hajj Mugagga is that he used to impregnate the girls and spread HIV/Aids to them. And the school OBs said as a result, students and staff are now living in fear over the claims.
They also want the school management to adopt a sexual abuse and misconduct policy that all members of staff at the school must adhere to to avoid similar future occurrences.
The school management has since gone to court, demanding that Egesa retracts the allegations which they said are defamatory and meant to tarnish the school image.
The ministry of education is yet to release the report of its investigation.
