The chancellor Ankole Western University, Bishop Johnson Twinomujuni, has spoken out on the deteriorating situation of the University.
Ankole Western University is faced with a lot of challenges including; confiscation of the University van by URA over failure to pay taxes and the resignation of vice chancellor Mesearch Katusiime who joined politics.
Other challenges include; lack of substantial University council, lectures demanding six months’ salary arrears and some lectures leaving the University for other Institutions among others.
However, Bishop Twinomujuni asked the public to be calm as he is working on the issues saying they should give him time.
The Bishop who noted that a new University Council will be appointed very soon, said this during an exclusive phone interview with www.mknewslink.com today morning.
He also assured the public that the vice Chancellor will also be appointed soon and that he will pay all the taxes and six month arrears for staff.
The University appointed Rev Edidah Mujinya as the acting Vice Chancellor after the resignation of Dr. Mesharch Katusiime.
