By Our Reporter

Makerere University lecturers have insisted on the 70 percent saying they will not step in lecture halls unless it is settled.

The university management met on Wednesday morning to find a way forward as the new semester sets in. Early this week, Makerere University Academic Staff Association (MUASA) advised the university not to re-open for the new semester if the May and June incentive amounting to over Shs. 4 billion is not cleared.

Last year the university council approved a 70% incentive to all staff following a two week-strike. MUASA spokesperson Luis Kakinda says a decision on the way forward will be made after the meeting.
