Makerere University has set conditions ahead of the planned shift in fees collections from the University to Uganda Revenue Authority.

This follows a proposal to have all fees in government universities collected by Uganda Revenue Authority then disbursed by the ministry of finance through budgetary allocations.

Speaking this afternoon at the 14th graduation of Makerere University Business school,the vice chancellor prof Bernabas Nawangwe says Makerere university is in support of the changes.
Makerere university uses over three hundred billion shillings annually to finance its recurrent expenditure.

However Nawangwe says the Government through the ministry of finance should ensure that the funds to ran the university are released on time for proper planning by the university administration.
