Imbonggu MP calls for Schram’s deportation
Imbonggu MP and Works and Implementation Minister, Francis, Awesa has called for the deportation of the University of Technology’s vice-chancellor, Dr Albert Schram, following the death of a student, Graham Romanong, on campus, The National (July 04) reports.
Awesa reportedly said during Romanong’s funeral on Saturday that Schram’s work permit should be revoked, his contracted terminated and that he be deported. He blamed the university for the student’s death saying it was incompetence and negligence on the administration’s part.
He said the inaction by the administration and police resulted in the death of the young man from his electorate. He said the responsible authorities failed miserably to take preventive and proactive action to protect lives and property on campus.
Meanwhile, three (3) students have been arrested for the alleged killing of their fellow student. It is alleged that Lawrence Simon, Lorry Paul and Gideon Luio, all in their early twenties (20s) attacked and killed Romanong around 10pm on Saturday, June 25.
