Kampala University Principal Dead


The principal of Kampala University -Juba Campus, Kalema Faisal Juuko is dead.

He died on Thursday, January 19, 2023 in Kampala, Uganda.

He was found dead in his house in Uganda’s capital where he’s been holed up since mid-last year following a botched graduation of over 300 students from Juba campus.

“He was not sick. We actually don’t know what happened,” Kampala University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Badru Dungu Kateregga said.

The actual cause of Juuko’s death will be known after a postmortem report.

“We are waiting for the result of the postmortem to come out to ascertain the cause of his death,” added Katerega.

Those who knew him said that the late principal had an underlying medical condition but he continued to discharge his duties normally.

His death comes barely three months after a Kampala court threw away a case in which over 300 South Sudanese had taken the college, a subsidiary of Kampala University, to court over botched graduation.
