Suspended controversial Makerere University lecturer Dr. Stella Nyanzi has been reinstated, although she will no longer be based at the Makerere Institute of Social Researcher (MISR).
Nyanzi who was directed by the University’s appointment board to report to duty by Feb.27 was suspended from the institute in April last year after she put up a nude protest following a disagreement with director Prof. Mahmood Mamdani after she refused to teach PhD students and participate in research projects.
According to the University Appointments Board chairperson Bruce Kabasa, Nyanzi had been allowed back but they had not yet found her a placement. He said they are most likely to post her in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS).
“The principle to bring her back has been agreed but the posting is still being discussed. What is clear, she is transferred from MISR but where she is going, we are still discussing,” he is quoted to have said.
But,Nyanzi took to her Face book account on Feb.27 to criticize the university’s human resource managers saying that she was not only transferred without consent but the Director Human Rights and Peace Centre (HURIPEC) at the School of Law where she was transferred to wasn’t informed.
