Ugandan university varsity credit case resumes

By Caroline Rwenji | March 2nd 2015

The Council of Legal Education has asked for more time to respond to a suit filed by a Ugandan institution against the Kenya School of Law.

Through lawyer John Burei, the council said it has not filed its replying affidavit and wants High Court judge Weldon Korir to give it more time.

"I pray that I be allowed up to Monday to file the replying affidavit," Mr Burei pleaded with the court.

Justice Korir adjourned the matter to tomorrow. The Uganda Pentecostal University went to court to challenge a decision by the Kenya School of Law's (KSL) refusal to admit its students.

The Ugandan university further sought to have KSL Director PLO Lumumba committed to civil jail for ignoring court orders issued by High Court judge Weldon Korir on October 31, last year.

The orders quashed the institution's decision not to recognise UGP law degree program.

Last week, Prof Lumumba was in court to defend KSL position.
