Njala University, Bo Campus has rusticated over 50 students for engaging in various forms of examination malpractices during the first semester examinations.
The rusticated students in courses such as the School of Education, Community Health Sciences, and School of Social Sciences and Law are expected to leave the campus for one academic year, following a war waged against exam malpractice by the head of the campus, Professor Mohamed Syed Fofanah.
Also, two female students (F. K. Kamara, Final Year B Sc. Nursing, and F. J. Mallah, Second Year SRN Upgrading) were expelled from the University for taking part in an illegal admission syndicate after being investigated by the university authorities.
Last year, 84 students from the Kowama and Towama campuses were also rusticated for a period of one year for their involvement in various forms of exam malpractices, according to the authorities.
Meanwhile, members of the Public including a retired medical practitioner, John Kortu have lauded the university administration for this move as part of an effort of complementing the same move by President Bio to enhance a free and quality education.
“Examination malpractice appears to be a celebrated norm in most educational institutions in Sierra Leone… universities need to set firm precedents to curb this menace and prevent any occurrences,” Mr Kortu said.
