A first Year student at Kyambogo University Uganda, identified as Julius Osuta, disappeared earlier this month after losing KSh 20,000 (N71,781.78) meant for his tuition on betting.
The student was picked up by police officers from Arua Park in Kampala and handed over to his parents
Osuta’s family was unaware that he had disappeared until a classmate called the father to inquire about his son’s whereabouts
Kampala Metropolitan Police (KMP) spokesperson Luke Owoyesigire told the media that Osuta had spent over KSh 20,000 (N71,781.78) on betting. Osuta had received the money from his father with instructions that it was meant to be his tuition fees.
Public reactions Allan Byamugisha Tibaringanira:
“Many of us are victims of eating school fees but we are now important to our families. He needs counselling just and this will be his testimony.”
Tuti Tuti: “Let him abandon the course at KYU and start carrying luggage at Arua park. Even after studying, there are no jobs.”
Maggie Nampijja: “I am glad he is still alive. May the parents receive him calmly and speak to him well into serious academics.”
Musa Lemeri: “He thought he could make a profit from the tuition of other non-educational programs but he ended up in trouble. Let them forgive him.”
