Makerere University Staff Tribunal ordered the University to bring back Nyanzi to her position as a research fellow at the Makerere Institute of Social Research.
In 2017, Nyanzi was suspended by Prof John Ddumba-Ssentamu, the Makerere University Vice-Chancellor following orders of board chairman Bruce Balaba Kabaasa for attacking the Minister of Education and Sports Janet Museveni.
Nyanzi claims the University’s staff tribunal ordered the University reinstate her to the old position,make salary payments,benefits and promotion from the post of Research fellow to senior research fellow.
“On October 23, 2018 through my lawyers, I registered my frustration, disappointment, dissatisfaction, irritation, anger and annoyance with the unjustified, unexplained, inexcusable, unacceptable and contemptuous failure of the respondent’s appointments board, director of human resources, director of legal affairs and MISR to implement the decisions and orders referred to above, and purges itself of the contempt of the orders of the Tribunal by implementing them without further delay,” reads part of the court documents.
Nyanzi who is also a post-doctoral researcher says she addressed the letter to the University Secretary, directorate of legal affairs and director of human resources, though no reply she received.
