The meeting is being chaired by the Academic Vice Chancellor Dr Okello Ogwang and the finance director Prof. Banabus Niwangwa.


On Monday, the Makerere staff issued a 3-day ultimatum to the University management to come up with an explanation why it has failed to clear the 70 percent incentive for May and June.


The staff wrote a letter addressed to the university council, advising the university not to open for the new semester if their incentive amounting to over Shs4 billion is not cleared.

The ultimatum given by the staff will be ending on Friday or they refuse to open the next semester.
