Makerere University council, the university’s highest decision making body will convene on Thursday to discuss whether to scrap or retain 60% tuition policy.
In a statement issued by the Vice chancellor Prof. John Ddumba Ssentamu after a meeting with students’ leaders, the university council will meet on Thursday.
The vice chancellor also ordered suspension of the on-going tests.
This comes at the backdrop of yesterday’s strike against the same policy.
“After deliberations with the above mentioned (students leaders), management agreed as follows; that all tests and coursework are to be postponed until the decision of the Emergency University Council Meeting that’s to be held soon; much as students representatives wanted the emergency university council meeting to be held on Wednesday 6th April at 10:00am, upon consultation by management with the chairperson university council, management fixed the emergency meeting for Thursday 7th April 2017,” the statement reads.
Management asked students to remain calm until a final resolution is passed on Thursday.
However, there are signs around campus that students may continue with the strike today.
