Makerere vice chancellor, MUASA chairman reach an agreement to work together again
Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe has today afternoon addressed a joint General Assembly of staff associations of Makerere University; whose heads he recently suspended, sparking the industrial action.
The joint assembly at the Makerere Main Hall followed an earlier meeting between the suspended association leaders and the university management headed by the Vice Chancellor.
During the first meeting, Nawangwe revealed that an agreement was reached between the two sides to “start a new chapter.”
Nawangwe suspended the heads of the staff associations led by Deus Kamunyu of MUASA, accusing them of insubordination and inciting other staff members to disrupt university business.
Even though he didn’t disclose the resolutions of today’s meeting, Nawangwe implied that an agreement was reached to reopen the university as negotiations between the two sides carry on.
