Freshers At Makerere Angry Because Of Lecturers’ Strike

It has been only days since the first-year students reported to the great institute of Makerere for higher studies. However, quite a number of them have expressed their dissatisfaction due to the lecturers failing to appear in the lecture rooms.

Following the reporting of the first-year students, lecturers in many government institutions went on strike. The strike came as a different strategy they were using to ask that they be given their salaries for the time they have taught the continuing students.

The first-year students were told that they will have physical contact with the lecturers for the first month of their first semester. After that, they would go back home and resort to online classes. The institution has an e-learning platform called ‘Muele’

Therefore, the fact that lecturers failed to appear infuriated the fresh students who have been eager to resume studies after sitting home for over two years. Many are complaining about the fact that they have no idea how the online platform works and the lecturers aren’t appearing.

‘’I don’t know how to create a Muele account and my student’s email has failed to work. But when I go to the lecture room, the lecturers also don’t show up. Our one month is passing by quickly and after that, they will tell us to go home. Why did they not strike when they were telling us to pay tuition?’’ a first-year student at Makerere said.

Hopefully, things work out for the first years. There are no other continuing students at the institution to help them through these processes.
