Makerere University Vice Chancellor has appointed a five member committee to investigate the activities and conduct of suspended MUASA chairperson, Dr.Deus Kamunyu.
Early this month, Prof.Nawangwe suspended Kamunyu over misconduct which among others included inciting violence at the university.
However, in a January 24 letter Nawangwe appointed Prof.Sarah Kiguli from the School of Medicine to head the committee which also has Prof.Noble Banadda(department of agriculture and bio-systems engineering), Dr.Moses Musinguzi( Dean, school of the built environment),Jane Nabukeera(Directorate of Human Resources) and Esther Kibinga(directorate of legal affairs).
“As required by law and the Human Resources Manual of Makerere University, I am appointing a committee to investigate the activities and conduct of Dr.Deus Muhwezi Kamunyu,” reads in part Prof. Nwangwe’s letter.
“The committee is required to submit the report within a period of two months with clear recommendations .”
Since Kamunyu’s suspension, Prof. Nawangwe has insisted that the MUASA chairperson is responsible for his own transgressions that have continued despite several warnings.
“Dr. Deus Kamunyu Muhwezi was dismissed from MUBS for activities that made that institution ungovernable,” Prof.Nawangwe said in an email to staff on Tuesday.
“My predecessor, Prof. John Ddumba Ssentamu gave a written warning to Dr. Deus Kamunyu Muhwezi for activities that tarnished the reputation of the University and colleagues.”
Prof.Nawangwe said he has on several occasions warned and also counseled Kamunyu over his transgressions adding that the latter refused to heed to his advice.
He said that instead of reforming, Dr.Kamunyu only increased on his activities a thing he said was wrong.
Since Kamunyu’s suspension, Makerere University lecturers laid down their tools until the suspension on their leaders is lifted by the university.
