Makerere University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Barnabas Nawangwe has suspended a member of staff for leaking documents to social media. Isaac Anyaku, a Custodian at the University College of Business and Management Sciences –COBAMS was suspended last month.
Professor Nawangwe alleged that on July 3rd 2019, Anyaku was cited illegally accessing the office of the Chief Security officer in his absence where he allegedly accessed confidential documents that he later photographed and disseminated on social media. He added that some members of staff received threats over the disseminated information. Also, it is alleged that Anyaku stole a fuel card from the office.
Anyaku failed to respond to the allegations in writing as ordered by the vice chancellor and he was subsequently suspended. However, sources close to the university management said that there could be malice against Anyaku, since he refused to testify against Dr Deus Kamunyu during his trial at the Appointments Board, when the former was a security officer attached to the Main Building at the time Kamunyu and colleagues allegedly invaded the council meeting.
