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.
