Strike by staff members of public universities that has been suspended following a meeting with the president where they were promised to have arrears and enhanced salaries paid in October.
At a time when students in public universities expect the government to be finalising with disbursing Shs 56bn for the striking varsity staff, Keith Muhakanizi, the permanent secretary for ministry of Finance has insisted there is no money.
While being hosted on Capital FM on Saturday, a day when all public universities were expected to open after several postponements, Muhakanizi said: "The supplementary budget money that would be used to pay striking staff was spent on South Sudan rescue mission...and there is no money now."
Justice Kenneth Kakuru of the Constitutional court has vehemently criticised police brutality meted out to Ugandans.
While officiating the launch of the African Media Barometer (Uganda) 2016 report which details media freedom in the country at Sheraton hotel on Wednesday, Kakuru described the public flogging of Ugandans in Kampala as completely unacceptable and unconstitutional.
