The Minister of Education and Sports, seek Hon. Janet Kataaha Museveni has suspended travels of Makerere University staff.

The minister according to media reports sent out the directive to the university officials, barring them from travelling within and out the country.

Reports quote a Ministry of Education source as indicating that Mrs. Museveni wrote to Dr. Charles Wanna Etyem, the Chairperson of Makerere University Council about the stern directive.

According to the said letter, the minister stressed that in addition to what the university council passed in their recent seating, in implementation of the presidential directive to indefinably close the university; the staff members must desist from making official inland and foreign travels.

It was still unclear, whether or not the minister’s directive was a blanket one or covered a specific number of staffers at the country’s largest education institution.

The Ministry officials have since expressed ignorance about the said letter. The Ministry publicist Patrick Muyinda when contacted by ChimpReports said he was not in office and couldn’t confirm its existence.

The development comes days after University staff members were asked to hand in all University property, including cars and ordered to vacate university halls.
