The Islamic University in Uganda 9IUIU) has decided to send home its employees. This is due to the outbreak of the coronavirus in Uganda. In addition, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni issued directives to close up all the institutions in the country.

However, the Islamic University in Uganda will pay all the staff salaries until the end of May but they will get back to work when the University reopens.
