Makerere lecturers demand for immediate release of committee findings
Makerere University Academic Staff Association have demanded the immediate release of the report about the findings by Makerere Visitation committee that was appointed by the president near a month now.

Makerere University’s academic staff association (MUASA) say the ongoing age limit removal proposal is not a necessity to the Nation and should not be a priority.

MUASA also showed worry over the delayed release of the report containing the findings of the Visitation Committee appointed to investigate causes of strikes at the institution. 

Addressing the media today morning, Dr. Muhammad Kigundu who heads MUASA also demanded the immediate release of the findings of the Committee to provide solutions to staff’s grievances.

They expressed fear that the report may disappear since Dr. Abel  Rwendeire the committee chairperson died.

Nine months ago President Museveni commissioned a Visitation Committee after  lecturers’ strike and  closure of Makerere University for 5 months to make inquiries about the cause of the continued strikes in the University.

MUASA also commented on the ongoing Age Limit debate, insisting that the debate is misplaced before MPs consult their people. Dr Muhammad Kiggundu said the removal of the age limit is not a necessity for the nation at this time.

However, they have called for a national debate for both against and in support of the proposal.

Government spokesperson Ofondo opondo has described them as attention seekers.
