Members of parliament have joined the fundraising campaign to raise over 28 billion shillings to clear Makerere university arrears and have the institution open.

In a statement that has gone viral on socialmedia, the general public is asked to contribute money towards opening Makerere on an account in the names #KiizaBesigye. The same statement further informs the readers that the RSVP should be through the contacts of the FDCs Spokesperson and other FDC officials.

The fundraising campaign is championed by former Makerere university guild presidents including Ntungamo Municipality MP Gerald Karuhanga, Female MP Anna Adeke and Bugabula County’s Maurice Kibalya.

The law makers joined by former MUK students who are legislators from all political parties have agreed to join the campaign started by former FDC presidential candidate Rtd Col Dr Kizza Besigye.

During a news conference held at parliament where 550 thousand shillings was raised this evening the MPs say that their efforts will not go in vain.

However, many people are asking that if the noble cause for the fundraising was Makerere University, then the account name would be in the names of MUASA and beneficiaries would be signatories but here the account name/ owner is Dr. KiizaBesigye and -RSVP should be the MUASA spokesperson but not & why Hon. Semuju? its

Makerere University was closed when a president’s directive was issued ordering for its closure till further notice to guarantee safety of persons and property.

Different endeavours have been undertaken to see the Ivory Tower opened by almost all stakeholders yet not any has yielded results to even ascertain when it’ll be opened.
