Speaking to IGIHE, Lwakabamba said that he submitted his resignation letter on Thursday
“It is one simple reason, I was employed to make sure the university grows and deliver quality education; unfortunately we put up a strategy which would save the institution but it was not approved,” Lwakabamba said.
He said that they have been negotiating to implement the strategy within two years but founders were not supportive.
“I’ve been running education business for many years, and unfortunately the owners of the institution do not approve, so why should you continue? I wanted to make a difference but they didn’t allow me to do so,” he added.
“When students leave your school, you lose money. We tried to solve this problem by seeking foreign aid but management did not agree, disagree or come up with another strategy” he explained.
Lwakabamba took over leadership of UNIK in 2015.
