Makerere University students’ leaders have demanded that government sorts  out the issues at the institution that have caused the non-teaching stuff to go on strike.

“We as students support the non-teaching stuff because the letter they based on was written by the president and he has never come out to claim that he did not write it. This means that whatever they agreed on with the president the government knew, viagra dosage http://compagniedoucefrance.fr/media/widgetkit/widgets/gallery/styles/showcase/template.php ” said Jothan Burobuto, cost http://couponsavingfamily.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/photon.php the acting Guild President for Makerere University.

The Non-teaching staff under their umbrella body, the Public Universities’ Non-Teaching Staff Executive Forum (PUNTSEF) laid down their tools demanding a salary increment as was promised by the president last year.

The strike which has entered the fourth day today has left many new students stranded as they cannot get their provisional admission forms in order to be able to plan for the semester.

Burobuto says that the issues between the government and PUNTSEF shouldn’t affect the students and maintains that the university must open on Saturday August 6th as planned

He also advices government to sort out the issues affecting the non-teaching staff as fast as possible if not as students they will take action.

‘Government should think about over a hundred  thousand students that are being affected by this strike because we as students pay our dues and wait for services which is not fair’ he said.
