Makerere University Student Leaders to Meet Management for Talks

After four days of nonstop protests at Makerere University, the management of the institution has invited student leaders for talks. The students are protesting the 15 per cent cumulative tuition policy which was approved by the top governing body.

Student leaders and management are set to meet today at 2 pm, according to an invitation written by the acting vice-chancellor, Dr Umar Kakumba.

The students will be represented by the guild president, Julius Kateregga and his council

“Following the students unrest that disrupted teaching and learning in a few colleges between Tuesday October 22, 2019 and Friday October 25, 2019, this is to invite you and the Guild Representative Council for an interface with the university management on Monday, October 28, 2019, at 2 pm in the Senior Common room, main Building,” reads Dr Kakumba’s letter.

The guild president, however, says his body will only attend if the University revokes the suspension of students who participated in the ‘peaceful demonstration and if all the warning letters to the students are withdrawn.
