MAKERERE – Finalist students at Makerere University’s School of Statistics and Planning have Tuesday staged a demonstration demanding for the release of their results and a graduation lists.

According to information available, lecturers at the school of statistics and planning withheld results demanding the management to sack Dr Robert Wamala, the school’s dean from office.

This website has learnt from the sources at the university that the lecturers will sit on Tuesday to decide on whether to lay down their tools or try other means until the university effects the dismissal of Dr Wamala whom they say he has abused the office.

The outgoing students were also joined by the continuing students who also claim missing and delayed marks.

Thomas Nsubuga, the Makerere University Statistics Students Association (MASSA) president, said that they have given the university management up to Wednesday to have their graduation list and results out, since other schools and colleges have already accessed theirs.

“Other colleges and schools released, it is only our college which has not. So we are demanding that by Wednesday, the graduation list should be out,” Mr Nsubuga said.

He added that continuing students are not going to attend lectures until the results for last semester are out.

Prof Barnabas Nawangwe, the university Vice chancellor in a letter dated June 1 wrote to all the principles and deans of schools requiring them to produce students result by June 8 and graduation lists in July.
