Outrage Of Makerere University Inferno At Dawn

Wednesday, 23rd September 2020

The cause of the Makerere University fire which ravaged the iconic Ivory Tower of the Ugandan citadel of higher learning on Sunday, is yet to be established. The fire is reported to have started at the top of the main university administration building at dawn on Sunday, 20th September.

While Government has launched investigations as to the cause of the fire, it is reassuring to learn from authoritative university sources that University servers were rescued from the inferno. For Makerere University students and alumni, this is very good news. Thanks to its IT programme the university had carried out extensive digitization of administration as well as student documents and records.
