Makerere University Management has started engaging the leaders of various associations to end the current stalemate at the institution.  The acting Makerere Vice Chancellor, Dr. Eria Hisali told journalists on Tuesday afternoon that management met the leadership of three associations in the morning.

The leaders were drawn from Makerere University Academic Staff Association-MUASA, Makerere Administrative Staff Association-MASA and the National Union of Education Institution (NUEI). He however, says they didn't reach a conclusion because the association leaders were meeting Makerere University Council Chairperson, Lona Magara.

The stalemate at Makerere University follows the suspension of Dr. Deus Kamunyu Muhwezi, the Chairperson Makerere University Academic Staff Association-MUASA, Bennet Magara, the Chairperson Makerere Administrative Staff Association (MASA) and his General Secretary, Joseph Kalema for alleged indiscipline and inciting staff.  

The university teaching and non-teaching staff announced a strike on Friday protesting the suspension of their leaders by Makerere Vice Chancellor, Prof Barnabas Nawangwe. They are also calling for the removal of Bruce Kabasa and Ruhinda North MP, Thomas Tayeebwa from the university council. 

The duo bounced back as council after the expiry of their term in December last year. Kabasa was the chairman of the University Council Appointments Board while Tayebwa chaired the Finance, Planning and Investment Committee.

The university management has since Saturday insisted that the university is operating normally. The vice chancellor warned that staff who go on strike will also be suspended. This afternoon, URN found university offices open but no lectures were going on.
