There Is A Lot Of External Political Interference In The University’s Affairs – Prof Barnabas Nawangwe

The Vice Chancellor Of Makerere University, Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, has said external political interference has so much affected the politics of Makerere.

“There is a lot of political interference by external forces in the affairs of the university and they had influenced them so much that students seeking leadership must all campaign using political colours.”

The political interference was one of the reasons why elections were halted in Makerere University earlier this year. However, he says there is a road map already that is to be followed for these elections to take place.

“We have a roadmap to return to the election of the guild leaders. I believe that in the next one month we will have held those elections and students will elect their leaders.”

Nawangwe also thanked the government for standing with the University financially. Apparently, government gave the University all the required money for the completion of the main building.

Speaking to NTV, he also informed the viewers that the University is planning to cut on the numbers of the students in Makerere.

“We are reducing the numbers, not because of overcrowding but because we want to become a more research-led university. If you are more research-led you need to have more graduates than undergraduates.”
