300 to Miss Makerere graduation over fees

Makerere University has said about 300 students who did not clear tuition fees will not graduate at the university’s 68th graduation next week.

In a public notice through the media, the university has asked parents, guardians and sponsors to verify financial positions of their students with the university bursar before January 16, the first day of the four-day graduation.

The names of the affected students were published in the press yesterday.

Ms Ritah Namisango, the university spokesperson, said yesterday those who have not satisfied all the requirements (both academic and financial) will not graduate.

According to the university’s Academic Registrar, Mr Alfred Masikye Namoah, each grandaunt is expected to nominate two guests who will accompany them to the graduation venue at Freedom Square.
