The first deadline was on November 5 and no vehicle was returned. This forced Professor Ddumba to issue another deadline of Monday November 7 and this saw only 8 vehicles returned.
Makerere university staff has since been unwilling to return university vehicles on time set by the university authorities.
The university vice-chancellor Prof. Ddumba Ssentamu had given all staff over three deadlines but very few staff members adhered to the directive.
"Some Vehicles are still pending. I am glad some staff members are parking at different lots, this is because one parking lot at estates and works department cannot accommodate all the vehicles," he said.
The first deadline was on November 5 and no vehicle was returned. This forced Professor Ddumba to issue another deadline of Monday November 7 and this saw only 8 vehicles returned. Pursuant to staff appeal for more time, deadline was extended to Friday 18.
Up to date all the 375 vehicles of staff and project coordinators have never been returned contravening the earlier set deadlines.
Last week, the university public relations officer, Ritah Namisango said that members of staff had not returned vehicles on grounds that they were far in villages and therefore needed more time.
Graduation date still unknown
Prof. Ddumba Ssentamu revealed that the date for graduation is not yet decided since the university is still closed.
"Students will have to wait until the university in opened. There is no access to different departments for clearance and this will affect the whole academic calendar. Nothing to do, we have to adhere to the directive" he said.
Prof. Ddumba further said that communication as per graduation will kick off as soon as the university is opened.
