    How can you ask the president to issue a gazette to prevent students to obtain higher education. This is pure jealousy that others obtaining a same qualification as they.

    For me it is not understandable why the President is dealing with rowdies, which are certainly not stakeholders in this matter. Thursday, 24 August 2017 09:36 AM

    How come this will be a crucial discussion when you already failed few discussions with president before ? Even after this discussion can you please get used to the reality and let private medical education progress with required guidelines please.

    President should not be issuing gazettes at the whim and fancies of anyone
