Agency Suspends Two Colleges in Gambella

March 16 , 2019

The Higher Education Relevance & Quality Agency has suspended two higher educational institutions, Trinity Lutheran Seminary College and Shobile College, in Gambella Regional State last week. The colleges were suspended for operating without a license, according to Tarekegn Geresu, communications directorate at the Agency. “No private college in the region has a license,” Tarekegn told Fortune. “But there are operational private colleges licensed elsewhere that opened a branch in Gambela.” During an inspection conducted by the Agency, 11 private colleges were also found in the region operating without a license, according to Tarekegn. Management of Trinity Lutheran Seminary College, which gives technical and vocational training and theology seminars, is not aware of the move of the Agency, according to Assefa Lamore, a theology teacher at the college. “We’re operating after getting a license from the region,” said Assefa.
