Makerere University Academic Staff Association ( MUASA) on Thursday stormed a council meeting demanding for the immediate removal of Eng Dr Wana Etyem, Bruce Kabaasa and Thomas Tayebwa from the council or they lay down their tools
Led by the association chairman Dr Deus Kamunyu, they pitched camp near the door way waiting for an opportunity to storm the ongoing council meeting to ensure that the three member of the council they blacklisted didn’t attend the meeting.
However this was not possible as the Makerere security team maintained tight security during the meeting forcing the MUASA staff into an exchange with the police officers saying they are encroaching on their rights to express themselves.
Benet Magara, the chairman of Makerere University administrative staff also expressed discontent on why their representative to the council was locked out of the meeting yet she was duly elected.
In response, the head of security at Makerere university said he was under orders not to let her in for her election was null and void
Tayebwa, who is MP for Ruhinda North , wondered why MUASA wants them out yet the public voted them.
In a letter dated December 19, MUASA noted that Etyem, Kabaasa and Tayebwa were cited by the Rwendeire committee as being part of the bad governance and were accused of tainting the image of the university.
