Minister of education to appear before Parliament over the fate of Makerere
The ministry of education and sports, is today expected to present a statement before the house to explain when the staff at Makerere will end their strike and students resume studies.
This follows Parliament’s directive yesterday, that the ministers of education present a statement today explaining when the staff will end their strike at Uganda’s oldest University.
The matter was raised in parliament by Bulamogi County MP, Kenneth Lubogo who is concerned about the continued stay of the students at the university, spending money without attending classes.
None of the three ministers of education was in parliament to respond to the matter which was even on the order paper as it was earlier raised by Kira municipality mp Ssemujju Nganda.
The deputy speaker Jacob Oulanya asked the government chief whip Ruth Nankabirwa to have at least one minister in the house to respond to mps concerns adding that whenever urgent issues are raised in parliament, there is no minster to respond immediately.
