Top University administrators in Kampala are working with stakeholders to reschedule evening lectures as they could be affected by the COVID-19 curfew that kicks off at 7pm.
The move has come a few days after President Yoweri Museveni announced plans to allow learners in candidate classes and finalists in tertiary institutions and universities to resume studies at the beginning of June.
It is worth mentioning that most evening lectures stretch up to 9pm and having curfew in place would deter evening scholars from attending their respective classes.
According to Reuben Twinomujuni, the Public Relations Officer Kyambogo University, they are considering moving evening class students to the day program in a bid to observe curfew.
He says the university task force is also considering revising some of the standard operating procedures to prevent corona virus infections and enforcement of social distancing, face mask wearing and hand washing among other measures.
Professor Barnabas Nawangwe, Makerere University Vice chancellor, says management will adjust some programs in case the curfew continues so that students can complete their studies smoothly. Nawangwe added that they will reduce on the hours of the lectures to allow all students study during day and have enough time to return home before 7pm.
According to Dr. Mouhamad Mpezamihigo, the Kampala International University Vice chancellor, the university will come up with means to ensure all students appear during day for few hours and catch up online later in the evening.
Professor Vicente Kakembo, the Vice Chancellor Muteesa 1 Royal University, says they are waiting for communication from the Education Ministry as they also hold video conference meetings to draft timetables for the finalists.
