Dr. Nyanzi Appeals Her Sacking from Makerere University


Dr Stella Nyanzi has appealed to the Makerere University Staff Appeals Tribunal protesting her sacking.

The decision to sack Dr Nyanzi, a research fellow at Makerere Institute of Social Research (MISR) was reached by the University Appointments Board at its 587th meeting held on December 11, 2018. She was sacked alongside 45 other personnel from various units in the institution.

In a letter communicating her termination of employment with Makerere University, Andrew Abunyang, the institution’s Human Resources Director directed that Nyanzi hands over all University Property in her possession. This letter according to Dr Stella Nyanzi was served to her through the Officer in Charge Luzira Women’s Prison, where she has been detained since 7th November 2018.

Nyanzi is currently on remand on charges of cyber harassment and offensive communication in regard to her alleged indecent communication against President Yoweri Museveni and his late mother, Esiteeri Kokundeka.

Through her lawyer Isaac Ssemakadde, Dr Nyanzi protests the decision of the Appointments Board.
