Kyambogo University lecturers have laid down their tools pending payment of their teaching allowances for January to May this year.

The resolution was reached after a heated general assembly where staff received and discussed a letter on the same from the university management at Kyambogo Main Hall.

In a letter dated May 30, Everest Twinomujuni the Kyambogo University Bursar, asked staff to remain calm since the university had committed itself to make payments for January and February as well as salary top-up payments.

“We received the letter for expenditure limit from the Ministry of Finance Planning and Economic Development on Friday 26th May 2017 and we are in the process of loading funds and then process payment of January and February 2017…,” reads the letter in part.

The bursar says payments were expected to be effected between June 2nd and June 5th 2017.

The teaching staff however noted that the university has made similar promises in the past without honouring them..
