Principles of Constituent Colleges at Makerere University have trashed the pleas by the University Council to prevail over the dons to take the offer of one month salary and other incentives.
In a heated meeting chaired by the University Council Chairperson Eng Wana Etyem the Principles reportedly refused to bow down to the pressures and pleas by the Council, to resume work at the Ivory tower.
The more than 8 hour meeting was held Monday evening, was also attended by the Chairperson of the Investment and Finance committee Thomas Tayeebwa.
