The Ministry of Education and Sports has made a clarification to the general public that Busoga University is still closed, contrary to what was written in one of the newspapers today Tuesday, August 4, 2020.
The daily monitor wrote “Government okays reopening of Busoga University.”
This, the Ministry of Education said, is not true.
Busoga University had its provisional license revoked at the 45th sitting of the National Council for Higher Education (NCHE) on November 27, 2017.
According to the statement issued by Ketty Lamaro on behalf of the Permanent Secretary Alex Kakooza, a transitional committee chaired Dr John Chrysestom Muyingo, the State Minister for higher education was appointed by President Museveni to guide the Government takeover process.
The committee, Lamaro said, is in advanced stages of concluding a report that will be presented to the President.
“The general public is hereby informed that the university remains closed as all parties, that is, Busoga University, National Council for Higher Education and Ministry of Education and Sports resolve all outstanding issues,” said Lamaro.
