President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has urged universities insisting on having end of semester examinations during the national lockdown to reconsider.
This comes after universities like Uganda Christian University (UCU) informed students that they would be sitting for end of semester examinations online even during the ongoing school institution lockdown.
The univerisity has been conducting lessons with students via online teaching portals.
While addressing the nation on the latest developments around the COVID-19 yesterday night, President Museveni asked universities to reschedule the examinations until the lockdown is called off.
He said that they will not make any exemptions when it comes to this.
So far, Uganda has a total of 53 confirmed cases of COVID-19. Globally, the number of infected persons stands at over 1.4 million people.
