“After a series of meetings, the government has agreed to take over Busoga University as a public institution with its Shs15b loan. We shall pay the loan when we know what the money was used for and If this money was spent on public efforts,” President Yoweri Museveni tweeted.
“The NRM policy is to have a public university in the original 18 colonial zones of Uganda. In Busoga, we are going to build a public university there (Namasagali). As that happens, the idea of taking over this private university is a good one,” he added
Busoga University has been on closure for over 4 years following the removal of it license by the National Council for Higher Education following short falls in the university adminstration.
