The non-teaching staff of Makerere University has carried on with their strike into the second day.
Business has been on a stand still at the Ivory Tower since the support staff laid down their work tools on Monday due to outstanding arrears and governments failure to increase their salaries promised.
The students and teaching staff continue to be frustrated as the non-teaching staff refuse to resume their duties unless they are financially sorted by the government.
Janet Museveni, the Minister of Education’s efforts to persuade these worker’s to play their roles as a lasting solution is found have been futile as they maintain their position of partaking in the strike.
This strike leaves the freshman students who ought to pick their admission forms ahead of the new academic year 2016/2017 which starts on 6th August in utter confusion.
It also leaves a blurry future of the University’s program since the people on strike play a vital role in the normal running of the institution’s activities and it is not yet clear on when they will agree to resume work.
