MAKERERE DONS TRASH VERSITY COUNCIL PLEAS

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.

The Principles told Eng. Wana Etyem to communicate his position to MUASA, since they all belong to the same umbrella.

The University Council was expected to meet MUASA leadership today to hammer out an understanding, although details are still scanty.

MUASA publicist Deus Muhwezi Kamunyu confirmed an invitation for the meeting, but insisted that they will stick to their guns.

President Museveni directed the closure of the University indefinitely on November 1st, after botched negotiations between the University Council, administrators and the Dons over the allowances for eight months
