Government to harmonize mubs stuff salary and review the structures



The Government is in the process of reviewing the recruitment and salary structures of Makerere University Business School (MUBS), in a bid to address staff unrest.

Wilson Muruli Mukasa, the public service minister, said the Government has resolved to harmonise the salaries of MUBS staff with those of other government-aided universities.

He says the university has been requested to submit to the finance and public service ministries a list of all its staff and their pay.

“The finance ministry is in the process of bringing a supplementary budget to Parliament,” Mukasa said.

Mukasa made the remarks while addressing journalists at the Uganda Media Centre, on Wednesday, on the progress made to address the challenges that have bedevilled MUBS over the last few years.

The academic staff has been threatening to strike since the Government reopened education institutions for finalists on October 15. Last week, they announced that they had laid down their tools, saying they are earning much less compared to their counterparts in other public universities.

“We their for call for lecturers to resume to their work so that students do their exams”mukasa said.
