Staff at Makerere University have rejected calls by university management to return to work. The staff jointly vowed not to return to work unless their suspended leaders are reinstated.  

The resolution was made during a joint General Assembly held on Monday afternoon at the  Makerere Main Hall where staff unanimously demanded respect of their associations and leaders.

The staff went on strike at the start of the Semester following the suspension of Bennet Magara and Joseph Kalema; both leaders of  MASA and Dr. Deus Kamunyu Muhwezi, the MUASA chairperson, for alleged misconduct and violation of the terms of their employment.
 

The staff demanded the immediate reinstatement of their colleagues arguing that they were irregularly suspended.  

Prof. Edward Nector Mwavu, the MUASA Vice Chairperson speaking to URN after the emergency General Assembly said the staff want their staff leaders reinstated within three days before they resume work.
