Makerere University Vice Chancellor Dumba Ssentamu

Makerere University’s 67th graduation ceremony that was set for January next year hangs in the balance after the university management hinted on a possibility of postponing it.
Prof Ddumba Sentamu, the Vice Chancellor, yesterday said confirming the date for the graduation would depend on when the university would be reopened by the President.

“We may postpone the graduation depending on the circumstances. If the university is reopened this year, automatically the graduation is bound to take place on the scheduled date. But if it opens next year, it is obvious we shall also postpone the graduation,” Prof Ddumba Ssentamu said.

President Museveni indefinitely closed the university recently after students went on strike demanding that lecturers resume teaching.
