Rev Isaac Nsereko, Director Nserester Nursing and Vocational Complex School in Masaka is facing charges of extortion and obtaining money by false pretense. Trouble for Nsereko started after Dr. Stuart Musisi, Masaka District Medical Officer ordered his school closed for operating illegally.
He ordered the closure of the school on the recommendation of Dr Diana Atwine, head of the state house Presidential Health Monitoring Unit. Musisi says the unit found the school operating without a license from the ministry of health and was offering fake certificates.
Noah Sserunjogi, Southern Region Police Commander says that they have decided to prefer charges of extortion against Nsereko. Sserunjogi says that they have recorded statements from 18 affected students.

Cue out: “….we proceed.”//
Police also says they are investigating whether Rev. Nsereko’s disappeared from the school after realizing it was at the verge of closure. More 30 students are still stuck at the school premises demanding a refund of their money before they return home. Lilian Kwagala, a first year nursing student from Busoga says that she will not leave until the shillings 1.5 million she paid is refunded.

Nsereko to return from his trip abroad to answer to charges against him.
