JUBA – The head of South Sudan’s Economic Cluster Sub-Committee on non-oil revenues and Minister of Animal Resources and Fisheries Onyoti Adigo has urged the country’s minister of higher education science and technology to shut down the branches of Christian and Kampala universities in South Sudan to avoid awarding credentials that will not be recognized by the country.
Onyoti stressed that the continued operation of the institutions in the country without accreditation was unbecoming and urged the ministry of education to seek police help to make sure that the two institution do not continue to operate.
“If a university like the Kampala University is not registered and it is still continuing operating in South Sudan, this is unbecoming. First of all, they are violating the laws and regulations of the Republic of South Sudan and if they continue teaching our students their certificates will not be reorganized,” he said on Thursday.
“They are cheating the students which is not good. The ministry of higher education should take this seriously with the law enforcement agents to see that this institution ceases operation,” he added.
The Kampala University in South Sudan was established in 2015. Its main base is Kampala, Uganda. The Christian University was established in 2010 and its main Campus is in Gudele.
