Suspended Makerere Institute of Social Research (MISR) Dr Stella Nyanzi has been summoned by the university to explain circumstances under which she stripped naked on camera protesting her evacuation from office by her boss.
In June this year, Dr Nyanzi was found guilty of “gross misconduct”.
An eight-man committee set up by Makerere University Vice Chancellor, Prof John Ddumba Ssentamu, in April found that contrary to Dr Nyanzi’s claim that she was demonstrating against because her office had been wrongly closed and keys taken away, she still had access to the office.
The committee noted that her actions were premeditated, carefully planned and executed with the help of students she was supposed to be teaching.
Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, Acting Vice Chancellor of Makerere University on Tuesday said Dr Nyanzi, had been summoned to appear before the appointments board on Friday over offences including her nude protest and vandalizing of university property.
“Dr Stella Nyanzi is still an employee with the University as far as I’m concerned and the University,” Prof Nawangwe told journalists that it is also on the same day that her fate shall be determined by the board.
Investigations into the management of MISR were commissioned at the height of the dispute between the institute’s executive director Mahmood Mamdani and Dr Nyanzi with the later accusing the former of poor management and having a vendetta against her.
