    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.
