Government Apologizes for Delayed Action over Kyambogo University

Audio 2

Government has apologized to lecturers of Kyambogo University for delays in resolving differences between with the teaching staff and the university administration.
The apology comes shortly after the Kyambogo University Academic Staff Association threatened to go on strike again unless an inter-ministerial committee, which investigated the conflicts at the university, acts on its resolutions soon. The chairperson of the association, Victor Locoro, says the academic staff are demanding for a general meeting to be called at which a strike would be announced to coincide with the students' examinations.
But the State Minister for Higher Education Gabriel Opio calls for patience and apologies for the delay in the release of the inter-ministerial committee report. He says the Education Permanent Secretary has been instructed to set a date for the discussion of the report and expects the resolutions to be released and implemented soon.

The Kyambogo University lecturers are demanding for the immediate formalization of their employment statement, which was not regularized when the university was established. They also want the Vice Chancellor, University Secretary and University Bursar to be sacked for nepotism, sectarianism and poor administration.
