In a Saturday night press statement issued the VC on behalf of the university management, Nawangwe says that the management has put in place emergency measures to ensure that the gowns of all graduands are ready by the day they attend the ceremony.
He further said that by Monday morning, all graduands for 14th and 15th January 2020 should have received their gowns. The rest of the graduands shall collect their gowns according to a schedule to be issued out by the Academic Registrar.
