The government chief Whip Thomas Tayebwa, has called for scrapping of graduation fees in all public universities.
Officiating at the launch of activities to mark 100 years of Makerere University, Tayebwa, said the extra fees paid for graduation is a burden to both the students and parents after struggling to pay tuition fees for all the year of study for various courses.
Tayebwa proposes that the fees be embedded in the tuition fees paid so that the burden is not felt directly.
The commemoration events are running under the theme “Leveraging 100 years of excellence in Building a transformational society.”
Makerere University was established in 1922.
