KAMPALA – Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof. John Ddumba Ssentamu has said that by the close of Tuesday, he will have filed a report to the minister of education on university staff who defiantly failed to return university vehicles.
Makerere staff were directed to return vehicles by the close of business on Monday but only five complied. 370 vehicles are yet to be returned.
The university has 375 vehicles both for staff and project coordinators.
This has forced the vice chancellor to file a report as directed by education and sports minister Janet Museveni for the next action.
“I have nothing to do with this issue. I am waiting for a report from the deputy vice chancellor in charge of finance and administration Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe. I will forward it by close of today for further action,” said Ssentamu.
Efforts to contact Prof. Nawangwe remained futile as he barred media from accessing him.
Prof. Ssentamu, representing the University Council, directed all staff and project coordinators to the return of the university vehicles and hand over keys since there is no operation at the institution following President Yoweri Museveni’s directive to close the university last week.
“By copy of this letter, college principals are requested to take charge of this activity with assistance of the director of estates and works,” he directed in a letter on Monday.
