Strike Over

The University is now officially open again after the lecturers decided to go back to work following a union meeting on Saturday. It seems the Ministry of Education stepped in to clear salary arrears which was enough to end the deadlock. Friday saw a minor demonstration but discouraged by the Guild President's appeal to remain peaceful, and a large police presence, most students decided not to bother.

Hopefully this will my last post on Makerere's woes for a while.
