Kadaga Criticizes Museveni’s Closure of Makerere University


The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Alitwala has criticized a decision by President Yoweri Museveni to indefinitely close Makerere University without consulting other stakeholders. Kadaga is concerned that the closure has affected various other institutions utilizing the university’s services especially health centres.
Kadaga’s remarks come after the Chairperson of the Parliamentary Committee on Health Dr. Michael Bukenya informed parliament on the worrying state of Kawempe Hospital where over 15 new born babies are dying daily as a result of the medical interns leaving their posts in the wake of the University’s closure.
