Makerere Vice Chancellor Directs University Staff To Report To Work Immediately

Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe the Makerere vice chancellor has directed the staff to report to work immediately. The reason for this directive is to get ready for the reopening of the new semester after the President’s address.

President Museveni recently gave educational institutes a green light on resuming studies for students. However, the green lights came with conditions allowing only finalists at each level of education to return to school.

The institutions of education have been closed for about 6 months now due to the coronavirus pandemic.

On the contrary, many people were skeptical about the reopening of the university due to its recent tragedy. A huge fire broke out in the university’s main building which houses the offices of the top university officials.

In a letter to all staff members dated September 22, 2020, Nawangwe says a meeting was held on September 21. The attendees of the meeting agreed to resume university studies enabling students to complete the second semester.

Makerere vice chancellor said he requires Heads of Department, Deans, and Principals to observe the council’s resolution. Each college will schedule an examination procedure for approval by the senate.

As he addressed, president Museveni highlighted the safety for finalists since they are only 1.5 million. This accounts for only 10% of the students in the country who total up to 15 million.
