The President has today appointed the sacked Vice Chancellor of Victoria University Dr Stephen Isabalija as the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Energy, replacing Kabagambe Kaliisa.

Isabalija was sacked this week by the chairperson of the university council, David B Matovu, for leading a strike of Victoria University. Among those sacked included deans and heads of department.

As permanent secretary, Isabalija might have a say in the education curriculum of Oil and Gas studies which Victoria University has lined up as their key courses.
