Rusangu University Dean Arrested for Using Forged Papers to Get Job

Police in Monze have arrested the Dean for the school of Science and Technology at Rusangu University for allegedly using forged documents to obtain employment at the institution.

Police sources disclosed to ZANIS in Monze today that 47 year old Donald Siame was arrested on Monday after a tip from informers that he had forged qualification documents which he purported were obtained from London.

Mr Siame purported to have a bachelor’s degree and a masters in agriculture sciences and was employed by Rusangu University as dean of science and technology.

When questioned by the police, Mr Siame admitted having not obtained the documents from the University of Zambia (UNZA) and a docket of forgery has since been opened against him for further investigations.

Police sources told ZANIS in an interview that information reached when students of Rusangu University in the department of agriculture sciences complained that he was not lecturing properly and suspected he was not qualified to handle the department.

Mr Siame is currently detained in police custody at Moomba Police station in Monze pending establishment of sources of the documents so that those involved may also face the wrath of the law.

Mr Siame joined Rusangu University in 2010 to date and has been getting a salary and other entitlements using forged qualification documents.

    Its high time investigative wings probed these so called lecturers in high learning institutions. ACC should be involved during interviews and schools to be consulted were these papers were obtained. Sad for zambia’s development.

    why hiring someone with papers from UK. we have UNZA and CBU here. They fear giving a well qualified lecturer a better salary, pay for your inefficiency!

    in our halls of higher learning.

      apparently the pic was taken with the back towards the functioning structures making up the admin and lecture/lab room. this is not to mention the building once described as having been downloaded from internet! the structures you see (straight on)were part of the original dorms/admin, a workshop/store room (right) and “utumalata” are the rear entrance to the accounts office (i believe).

    BTW This story’s title “Rusangu University Dean Arrested for Using Forged Papers to Get Job” could have been better written “Rusangu University Dean Arrested for Using Forged Papers” because no one is giving him a job!
