Conmen infiltrate Makerere admission process

Namisango said the university has hired officials at the three centres that have been created at the university to help students without charging any coin.

 

Conmen have started targeting prospective students applying to join Makerere University.

Rita Namisango, the University's Public Relations Officer told New Vision that the unscrupulous individuals had started raising posters outside campus, charging unsuspecting applicants between sh10,000 and sh20,000.

Namisango said the university has hired officials at the three centres that have been created at the university to help students without charging any coin.

And in a May 24 letter, the University's Vice-Chancellor Prof. John Ddumba Ssentamu explained that the online application is free and that no one was allowed to charge anyone.

In the 2016/2017 academic year, Makerere dropped the manual application system and embraced online application process as a customer care strategy.

Namisango explained that before embracing the digital technology, the prospective students would flood the university and line up in queues sometimes under a scorching sun.

She said the queues wasted a lot of time and that applicants incurred huge costs in travel expenses.
