UCU rubbishes students’ concerns, issues sit in exams
After a week or more where students leaders had a series of meetings with the Mukono based Uganda Christian University Administration, the results seem to be one-sided.
Trusted sources have revealed that top members in the university administration have sworn never to make any decisions guided by students ideas.
This wasn’t long after timetables for students in the Mass Com faculty were released and clearly indicated that they will be starting their exams.
It just came to our concern also that the university was already in violation of the Presidential directive on reopening of institutions since the university opened part-time physical learning for other students other than the finalists.
During an interview with one of the students, she clearly indicated that this is unfair to them as it seems the university even lost the Christian values it prides itself in.
“We have had only two months of studying and these people are issuing us exams! Why are they playing around with our future?” she mentioned.
Our sources also indicate that all students studying online will begin their exams on 24th January and no take-home exams shall be issued out.
This comes at the time when one of the Guild officials had told students earlier on to come and book hostels in Mukono or else they will miss out with where to stay during exams.
At this time the Guild officials have remained silent about the matter and our efforts to reach out on the big dogs in the Guild Government have also remained futile.
