The Country has witnessed an unprecedented clampdown from within Makerere University (hereinafter referred to as ‘Makerere’ or ‘ the University ‘) on freedom of expression and academic freedom through a blizzard of threats,warnings,suspensions and online vitriol.

Ever since its establishment, Makerere has enjoyed a deserved and vividly created image of a baobarb of Innovation, Activism, Academic research and Development.

Ranked alternately the 3rd or 4th best University on the African Continent, Makerere stands head and shoulder above many, alongside the greats in the annals of Africa’s tumultuous history.
