In a statement issued Monday by the search committee boss Dr S. Maloba, his team presented recommendations to the “Senate and ultimately to the Council to consider for the conclusion of the search process and the subsequent appointment of a Vice Chancellor of Makerere University.”

“The report is a submission of the accomplishment of the Vice chancellor search process 2012 as provided for in the Universities and other tertiary institutions Act 2001 (as amended) part VIII, section 31 (3),” said Maloba.

“The search committee 2012 officially commenced work after Tuesday May 22 when the council approved its terms of reference and guidelines and has been able to accomplish its task within the three months as mandated by the University Council,” he further stated.

The search involved three phases which were analysis/verification of applicants’ submissions, face-to-face interviews with applicants and public presentation by an applicant to the University Community and the wider stakeholders at the Makerere University Main Hall late last month.

The search committee’s decision to send the names to the Senate for vetting came after the candidates, save Baryamureeba, refused to make public presentations as required by the University guidelines.

They argued that Baryamureeba had to first step down as Vice Chancellor considering that he is a member of Senate which was part of the search process.

But the University Council assured the dissenting professors that Baryamureeba would not have an iota of influence on the outcome of the search committee.

The development is so significant in a way that Baryamureeba is likely to retain his hotly contested job as Vice Chancellor as the public presentation earned him more leverage in the race.

From this stage, the University Senate-the chief academic organ of the University will select three candidates for recommendation to the University Council.

The Makerere University Senate (the chief academic organ of the University) is scheduled to hold a meeting on Thursday August 9 to consider the Report of the Search Committee for position of Vice Chancellor of Makerere University.

Following the identification of the suitable candidates for this position the Senate will then elect and recommend three names out of the five to the University Council, which is the supreme governing body to name the Vice Chancellor.
