Dr. Stella Nyanzi resigns to join active politics
Makerere University Researcher Dr. Stella Nyanzi has resigned to join active politics.
According to a letter from the University’s Acting Director Human Resource Lawrence Ssanyu, Nyanzi’s resignation has been accepted by the University Council.
Nyanzi, who had earlier been suspended, was reinstated by the High Court last month after she won the case of wrongful dismissal that she had filed against Makerere University.
The outspoken scholar has already picked nomination forms to contest for the Kampala Woman Member of Parliament seat on the Forum for Democratic Change (FDC) ticket, but has also sought the blessing of the People Power pressure group led by Kyadondo East MP Robert Kyagulanyi popularly known as H.E Bobi Wine.
