New MUASA Blasts VC, Council Over 60% Fees Policy


pharmacy geneva; color: #222222;”>The newly elected MUASA chairperson Dr. Mohammed Kiggundu Musoke on Friday called upon government and the University Council to devise other means to revamp financing the institution’s business rather than harassing the private students.

“We are appreciative of the fact that staff is highly motivated by sufficient pay, and all necessities need to be taken care of but this doesn’t necessarily have to be borne by the private students alone,” said Dr. Musoke who replaced Dr. Tanga Odoi while addressing journalists on Friday evening at the main campus.

This came in the wake of a violent demonstration by students last Monday demanding that the council revises the lurid fees policy. While speaking at the same occasion, the University Vice Chancellor Prof Ddumba Ssetamu said that the council had constituted of a committee to look into the matter as required by the OPM, but maintained that the policy was irreversible.

“Students must understand that for the University to remain standing, and favorably compete for excellence in the continent and world over, our teachers must be well facilitated, structures must be in place, as well as the entire wellbeing of everybody herein,” he said.

The new MUASA executive had Dr. Mohammed Kiggundu at the helm, deputized by Margaret Mangai, and Francis Mwine was elected General Secretary. Louis Kakande was put in charge of Public Relations, Jacob Angea Head of Academics and Research, while Hellen Nankabirwa took the treasury.
