Lecturers at Uganda’s oldest and top university, Makerere University, started a strike on Tuesday to demand that the management pay their arrears.

Deus Kahunda Muhwezi, spokesperson of the lecturers’ association, told Xinhua on Wednesday the university council has failed to honor and pay the teaching staff incentives arrears since July 2016.


Muhwezi said the outstanding arrears amount to 56 billion shillings (about 20 million U.S. dollars).

The lecturers are also protesting the management’s failure to harmonize salaries structures for the academic staff. Enditem
