THE Solusi University lecturer who was recently the subject of controversy when he reportedly caught his wife — a student at the Adventist-run university — pants down with another student, has reportedly been forced to resign by the institution.The incident sent tongues wagging at the university, after authorities allegedly shielded the lecturer and his wife, both Madagascans. The student allegedly found in bed with the lecturer’s wife is also a foreigner from Angola.
In the latest development, the lecturer, Mr Hasina Anjaramandresy, who is known at the university as Mr Anjara, was allegedly asked to step down at the close of the semester, with university authorities under pressure to act after the publication of the s*x scandal a couple of weeks ago.
According to students at the university, Mr Anjaramandresy reportedly bade farewell to his students last week, when the semester came to an end.
“He simply told us that he will not be here next semester due to a number of reasons beyond his control but what we are hearing is that university authorities asked him to step down so as to help protect the university’s image.
“The problem is that the authorities went for weeks without dealing with this issue hence when it came out in the media they had no choice but to act on it in a more diplomatic manner,” said the student.
The university’s deputy vice chancellor responsible for students’ affairs, Pastor Christopher Thebe, however, said Mr Anjara was not forced to step down but he had voluntarily stepped down to protect both his image and that of his family.
He alleged the matter had brought the lecturer so much emotional distress that he could not face his students.
“That story was really damaging because it attracted a lot of interest even from the international community hence he thought it would be difficult for him to stand in front of his students and worse we are talking of someone who is a missionary.
