The Government has warned all Kyambogo university staff who will not report for work on Monday that they will be dismissed.

Dr. Christopher Muyingo, the State Minister for Higher Education, said government is tired of Kyambogo university lecturers’ endless strikes and that it would not continue tolerating impunity.

 Kyambogo University staff members went on strike protesting the return of Vice Chancellor, Prof Isaiah Ndiege last month after court ordered the university council to re-authorise him to carry out duties as Vice Chancellor.

Since then lecturers and other staff have not been working and vowed never to return to work unless Prof. Ndiege is out of Kyambogo university.

The contract of Prof. Ndiege ends early next year.

The staff strike has made students to miss lectures for almost a month a thing that has forced them on several occasions to also strike demanding for lectures.

“In any organisation if you take long to carry out restructuring, some people grow wings. Please we’re calling upon the government to do the needful. Kyambogo university is ful of people with alot of egoism. I believe restructuring will lead to alasting solution,” a concerned student says.

The situation on Monday will thus not only determine the fate of lecturers, but also brighten the future of the students of Kyambogo University.
