As expected, the Appointments Board of Makerere has suspended Dr. Nyanzi with immediate effect pending investigations.
Dr Nyanzi hit headlines on Monday, when she stripped to get her office at the Makerere Institute of Social Research opened. MISR director Mamdani had locked the office after Nyanzi repeatedly refused to teach on the institute’s PhD programme.
The committee investigating the row, chaired by Prof David Bakibinga that was instituted on Tuesday by Makerere Vice Chancellor has Friday evening delivered their report leading to the anthropologist’s suspension.
The university regulations, one lecturer said, forbid staff from conducting themselves in a manner likely to negatively affect the university’s moral standing. University staff are also forbidden from inciting students to protest without substantial grounds.
University spokeswoman Ritah Namisango has made an official statement to the effect.
