“This is, therefore to warn and inform you that the appointment Board will not give you any further warning should the habit of using social media or any other means to abuse people,” Letter partly read.
“Accordingly, should you not heed this warning , the Appointment Board , will go ahead to Institute disciplinary action against you in the line with the Universities and other tertiary institution Act 2001 as amended , the Makerere University Human Resource Manual 2009 and other relevant documents,” Letter further stated.
Today the University Appointment Board has resolved to suspend her until further notice.
