By 6:45am graduands had started arriving at the university main campus. There is heavy deployment at the university as police personnel man all main entrances and small gates. Several graduands together with their parents are subjected to several security checks.
The number has been increased from 500 personnel deployed last year, due to the presence of continuing students at the university campus, according to Makerere University security officer Jackson Mucunguzi.
After delays caused by the closure of Makerere in November last year, the university is set to hold its 67th graduation in the weeks of February 20 to February 25. In CHUSS, however, departments are yet to produce graduation lists and hundreds of students are concerned.
