“on a sad note I wish to inform you that on 4th -09-2016 at 12:00am fire guttered our computer laboratory for this campus and it burnt all computers and the server,” Kateregga
Although Police is still investigating the cause of fire, Kateregga blames it on ill-hearted and envious persons.
The incident left three students with minor injuries during the inferno although no one was killed.
This is the second fire in ten months after the December inferno that burnt the University’s Kenyan House which Prof. Kateregga also attributes to arsonists.
