Members of the Makerere University Academic Staff have not received their responsibility allowances since last year. Edith Mwodha, the deputy Bursar Makerere University, says the unpaid allowances to the tune of 49.3 million shillings will be cleared immediately government releases the funds.
She however says that, none of the lecturers both full time and part time appointed by the departments are demanding salaries any salaries. She says only part time lecturers appointed by government are demanding their salaries.
According to Mwondha it's not true that only 50 percent had been paid to the Makerere University academic staff while their part time colleagues received only 25 percent of their salaries. Mwondha, who spoke to our reporter today in her office said, she was there to write to the academic staff to check their accounts for their December salary.
