Three top university leaders who previously served as Makerere University convocation bosses are walking a tight rope as their names are surfacing in the ongoing investigations by the Visitation Committee.
The committee which was set up by President Yoweri Museveni who doubles as the visitor to public universities Makerere inclusive is compiling a report on the root cause of trouble to never ending problems to the university. The said money is said to be in billions of shillings since their tenure of office was more than 10 years.
According to sources, a team of about three or so individuals among who include two flashy young men are at the centre of selling/hiring out convocation land in Katanga and use of convocation funds for personal use with allegations that one of the bosses build two hostels in the neigbouring outskirts from the proceeds.
Also at the centre is a noisy ‘politician’ of sorts who used to be associated with the teaching staff but oversee the affairs of a political party. Whereas the investigations are ongoing, the three who include a young politician in parliament are ever meeting in secret places to make sure they fail the investigators from unearthing the mother of scandal which is likely to rock the university due to their current connections to the university top management and council.
