By John Kibirige

No candidate has filled in an application for either Vice-Chancellor Post nor Vice Chancellor post  at Makerere University yet the deadline has been scheduled for Thursday and Friday respectively.

According to close source at the university search committee, no one has submitted his or her applications for the administrative posts and they are still waiting.

It is said that some candidates are in fear of submitting their application details because they might leak to other candidates who compete for the same post.


Only Professor Venansius Baryamureeba has submitted his referees but he has not yet submitted his academic papers.

Some of the candidates who have shown interest for the Vice-Chancellor post include Prof. Baryamureeba, Prof. Augustus Nuwagaba, Prof. Eli Katunguka Rwakishaya and Prof. Edward Kirumira.Professor Baramureba vowed to retain the seat though he is facing a lot of criticism.
