Public universities’ teaching staff issue admissions
Teaching staff in public universities have taken up the role of non-teaching staff and issued admission letters to prospective students.
Yesterday, at Kyambogo University, hundreds of students left the institution “satisfied”, after being issued with their admission letters by the faculty deans.
At Makerere University, college principals were issuing admission letters – as earlier directed by the Dr. Charles Wana-Etyem, the chairperson of council, the institution’s supreme governing body.
At Mbarara University, a number of non-teaching staff have resumed duty, according to the institution’s spokesperson, Denis Lukaaya, who also took a swipe at his colleagues for leaving the strike “open ended.”
At the other remaining public universities including Gulu, Busitema and Muni, issuance of admission letters has not been much affected; however, the absence of the non-academic staff continues to paralyze operations.
The non-academic staff of public universities August 03 laid down their tools over government’s decision to only raise pay for the 2,713 academics in this financial year.
