What Every PhD student dreads

On Monday January, 16th, 2006, I received a very upsetting email from my UK PhD supervisor, Adam Kilgarriff that one Makerere University (Computer Science) student had plagiarised my PhD Research Proposal and attempted to submit it as his, both at Makerere and to my supervisor asking if my supervisor could supervise him! My supervisor forwarded this "gentleman's" email to me & I read it. I have launched a formal complaint with the Dean of Faculty of Computing and IT at Makerere University, Dr Venansius Baryamureeba. Dr Baryamureeba promised to consider may complaint "together with my colleagues and get back to you as soon as possible but not exceeding two weeks from now." I await his response.
