Makerere University has asked for shs 300 billion to build a teaching hospital for their students. The request is contained in its Budget Framework Paper for the Financial year 2022/2023 which it tabled before Parliament.
Prof Barnabas Nawangwe, Vice Chancellor, said this will relieve their students from Mulago Hospital. This is where most universities have their students trained from. On top of this, Nawangwe asked the MPs to provide Shs 80 billion.
This is for the construction of students and business innovation centre where researchers will go and incubate their innovations.
This budget also includes Shs 12 billion to improve staff units, Shs 40 billion for the accommodation of graduate students and Shs 5.6 billion to facilitate the promotion of staff.
This is so as the university can realise its dream of being research driven. However, MPs were concerned with the delay in the construction of the perimeter wall something that they say has bred insecurity in Makerere University.
Meanwhile, it would really be great if Makerere got it’s own hospital. First of all, it’s a very huge and commendable University worldwide.
This would add to it’s excellence and also influence both in the country and outside the country.
This would also ave the students the trouble of running around looking for internship placement in already crowded hospitals. So this would clearly help everyone involved in it.
