The Makerere university administration assures of its commitment to implement recommendations of a nine member committee set to investigate the mismanagement of the University following incessant staff and student strikes.
The Makerere University Vice Chancellor Professor Barnabas Nawangwe says the university will carefully study the recommendations of the 355-page report from the Visitation Committee that was formerly chaired by the late Dr.Abel Rwendeire and implement them to redeem the institution.
On 29th December, The Deputy Chairperson of the Visitation Committee, Lady Justice Ketrah Katunguuka, handed over the report to the President’s country home of Rwakitura in Kiruhuura district at a function that was witnessed by the Minister of Education and Sports, Janet Kataha Museveni and the university council.
President Museveni instituted the Committee in November 2016 to study the causes of the endemic strikes with a view to finding lasting workable solutions.
The report highlights key issues at the university that need to be addressed which include inadequate management accountability and deteriorating quality of teaching and learning as well as student discontent and triggers of strikes, among others.
