“In my position as Chancellor I have interacted with Council Chairman and some of the conflicting parties on the issues concerned and the positions are reconcilable,” he added.

“Our lowest common denominator is that we are proud to be members of Kyambogo University. This must guide our conduct at this time as we face challenges to peace and tranquility,” said Adriko.

Several meetings were held today by the council members of the University but failed to come to an agreement on the way forward.

The lecturers want the Vice Chancellor Isaiah Ndiege to step down to allow an investigation into alleged mismanagement of campus resources.

The Council, which had suspended the entire administration to allow investigations, reinstated it on Tuesday in fear of legal consequences.

Security remains tight at the campus to maintain law and order considering that students today threatened to join the strike.

The commotion at the campus has paralyzed business there and denied students studies for days after returning from holidays.
