President Yoweri Museveni has no trust in his wife Janet Museveni to manage the ministry of education, a reason the president ordered for closure of Makerere University, Kizza Besigye has said.
President Museveni early this week ordered for closure of Makerere University indefinitely and ordered all students to return to their homes.
Museveni later said his government would not tolerate the indiscipline of lecturers who have made it a point to strike each time they want money from government.
The former forum for Democratic Change (FDC) presidential candidate however said on Friday the problem of Makerere University is under funding and mismanagement by government appointed officials.
According to Besigye who’s a four time challenger of Museveni closure of the university only means the minister of education has failed at her job.
Besgye said closing the university is denying education to the thousands of students whose parents had painfully paid tuition for their sons and daughters to study at the once glorious university.
