NTV Report — Renowned academic Professor Mahmood Mamdani has set terms for any investigation into a brewing controversy within his PhD programme at the Makerere Institute of Social Research (MISR).

On Monday Makerere University Vice Chancellor, John Ddumba Ssentamu called for an investigation into the events that led to a nude protest by Dr. Stella Nyanzi, a research fellow at MISR.


Mamdani, the director of the programme, told NTV’s Raymond Mujuni that his conditions are that Ddumba Ssentamu should be excluded from any investigations into the controversy at MISR due to his family ties with Dr Stella Nyanzi.

Prof. Mamdani also wants Nyanzi transferred from his programme before he can subject himself and the faculty to the investigation.
