According to the National Council for higher education in Uganda, the house of prayer Ministeries international senior pastor Aloysius Bugingo was awarded a fake degree at Kayiwa international university. However, the Bachelor of Theology and Integrated Studies seems to be from the United Graduate College & Seminary International, not Kayiwa international university.
Below are the details of what the National Council for higher education had to say:
National Council For Higher Education; Press release
10th June 2022
Illegal Graduation By Kayiwa International University
The national council for higher education (NCHE) has learned of illegal graduation held by Kayiwa international University (KINTU) today.
NCHE would like to clarify as follows;
Kintu was licensed by NCHE on 28th September 2015 and gazette in April 2016 under license N0. UI.PL027
In 2018, NCHE issued an intention to revoke giving them six months to work on their areas of weakness.
In May 2019, a reminder was sent to KINTU to submit their defense in line with the intention to revoke.
On 23rd August 2019 during the 52nd sitting of council revoked the license and this was gazetted in march 2020, published in the media, and KINTU was informed.
A letter informing the university of the closure was sent on the 24th of March 2020, an email of the same was sent and the same letter was sent by the post office.
Since then KINTU ceased to be recognized by NCHE as a university in Uganda, any academic function carried out in the name of KINTU as a provisional license university is illegitimate
We want to inform the general public that the awards arising from today’s graduation by the defunct KINT are not recognized by the NCHE and should not be used for employment or further studies in Uganda and anywhere in the world
With reference to the above, even though the degree awarded to pastor Bugingo seems to be from another university, it remains null and void on grounds that the partner used in Uganda was non-academic.
It is should be noted that pastor Bugingo graduated from Kayiwa international university in June 2019 with a certificate in theology
