@KagutaMuseveni has urged stakeholders in Makerere to talk & resolve all issues around fees. He's spoken to council chair & the guild president today, urging them to meet. He's ordered the withdrawal of the military police from the university. The @PoliceUg will maintain order.

Yesterday management held a meeting with the university guild leadership but the meeting ended prematurely with both sides fuming endlessly on the bone of contention that led to military operations at Lumumba and Mary Stuart hall.
However police has also been left to maintain order in the premises.
