Dr. Kamunyu is also accused of inciting other staff to disrupt university activities and engage in related unlawful conducts. “You have routinely been advised and engaged to stop your aforesaid misconduct but you have not taken heed, therefore in order to protect the reputation of the university, its activities, personnel and property from your disruptive activities, I hereby suspend you from the university in accordance with section 5.9 (b) of Makerere University human resource manual,” stated Nahangwe. Similarly Prof. Nahangwe said a committee will be constituted to investigate Kamunyu’s  conduct where he will be invited to defend himself. Meanwhile Makerere University administration will pay him half salary as he is being investigated, but he has been barred from stepping foot at the university premises, or utilizing any property that belongs to the university. an accessible web community
