Gov't Sponsored students demand increase of allowances

Gov't university students


Government-sponsored students in public universities are struggling to survive amidst the increasing prices of commodities and other essentials. 

This has forced students from Kyambogo, Gulu, & Makerere Universities to demand an increase in the living-out allowance. At Makerere University, government-sponsored students who reside outside the university receive at least 760,000 Shillings every semester as living-out allowance to cover the cost of their accommodation and meals while those staying in halls of residence only receive a food allowance amounting to 530,000 Shillings per semester.

Yesterday  Mbarara university students  also striked for delayed allowances.
