President Yoweri Museveni has said he is firmly behind the Makerere University administrations’ efforts to restore discipline to one of Uganda’s Highest and greatest institution of learning.
“Nawangwe is an Engineer, a professor of Technology and wants to restore discipline to this institution. People want to continue with buyayesism. Imagine a professor who stripes naked and is cheered on. Makerere is a centre of study not stupidity. I am firmly behind him,” the President said.
The President was responding to questions about the conflict between Makerere University administration and academic staff from journalists who ‘ambushed’ him shortly after he launched the six phase of the Presidential Investors Roundtable at State House.
The conflict between the University administration and its academic staff follows the suspension of various lecturers for misconduct, indiscipline and involvement in acts that breach the terms and conditions of their employment.
