Controversial Makerere Institute of Social Research (MISR) research fellow has been fired from Makerere University in a massive ‘staff reshuffle’ that saw 45 senior academic staff given the boot from the institution.

According to the Vice Chancellor of Makerere University Prof Barnabas Nawangwe, the majority of the number they have fired were staff who had absconded from duty for over five years, while others were involved in sexual harassment cases.
