Janet to address Parliament on public universities’ staff salaries

Must read

Education Minister Janet Museveni is this afternoon expected to present a statement on the payment of salaries in public universities.

By press time details of the presentation by the First Lady were scanty but it is expected that she will announce fiscal measures that will help curb unrest at the universities, arising out of discontent over poor remuneration.

‘On the Order Paper today is a statement by the Education Minister on the payment of salaries of staff in public universities, a message on Parliament’s Twitter handle stated.

The issue of salaries at Uganda’s nine public universities has been a point on contention between government, the universities and teaching staff but last year, while installing Gulu University Chancellor Prof Fredrick Kayanja, then education minister Jessica Alupo said the salary increment for professors would take effect this financial year.

At the time a professor in public universities was earning between UgShs3.5m and 4m, but Maj Alupo said the government would raise the amount to about Shs15 million.

Uganda has nine public universities and these include Makerere, Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST), MUBS, Kyambogo, Busitema, Gulu, Muni, Soroti and Lira University.
