PRESIDENT MUSEVENI ORDERS FOR REAPPOINTMENT OF PROF BALUNYWA

UTN Reporter

The replacement of the embattled Principle Makerere University Business School, Prof Wasswa Balunywa hits a snag following his reappointment by President Yoweri Museveni barely a day after he was replaced by the University Council.

President Museveni, in a letter dated May 28th, 2018 directed First Lady who is also the Education Minister Janet Museveni to reappoint Prof Balunywa for another term.

Balunywa had been replaced by the MUBS Council led by Former Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof. Venansius Baryamureeba who chairs the Council.

Prof Baryamereeba had last evening appointed Associate Prof Moses Muhweezi as the acting Principle MUBS, in what he described as a decision that was under taken during the extra ordinary Council meeting.

Muhweezi has been Prof Balunywa’s Deputy.

The appointment was amidst bickering between the two professors, who accused each other of mismanaging the institution.

Prof Balunywa’s contract expired on May 27th having served for two decades.

Whereas Baryamureeba’s letter to the Permanent Secretary Ministry of Education had indicated that the appointment of Muhweezi was to take immediate effect, President Museveni in his letter halted all the endovors redirecting Balunywa’s reappointment.

President Museveni’s letter praised Prof Balunywa for being on the liberation side ideology besides being an active administrator.

This now leaves the Education Minister Janet Museveni imbalance after she had instructed the Education Service Commission to start on the process of installing a new Principle.
