NEWS– Kabale University Administrators have called for the fulfillment of President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni’s pledge of Ugx 48 billion towards facelifting the University.
In 2016, while speaking as the guest of honor during the first graduation of Kabale University as a public University and installation of Prof. Mondo Kagonyera as the University chancellor, President Museveni pledged the money to help in face lifting infrastructure.
Now, speaking at the graduation ceremony of 840 graduates at the University grounds Kikungiri in Kabale district, Adison Kakuru, the Chairman University Council said that the University administration has waited for the pledge to be fulfilled in vain.
Kakuru revealed that now the university is still accommodating students in dilapidated hostels and that even the dilapidated hostels are not enough, which forces students to rent outside the University.
He noted that the failure of the university to own decent accommodation has led to its struggles to attract students from neighboring foreign countries.

Professor Mondo Kagonyera, the University Chancellor and Joy Kwesiga, the University Vice-Chancellor said that all the efforts to follow up the pledge to have it honored have not succeeded.
The Minister of Information and National Guidance Chris Baryomunsi, who represented Rtd. Maj. Jesica Arupo, the Vice President as the chief guest, said that he will table the demands before the government to see if it can be possible to be fulfilled.
He asked graduates to refrain from corruption, vices and irresponsible life while in the field of work.
