Makerere University main building has caught fire again! The side of the tower where the council room is situated has also been ravished by a fresh fire.
Sources at the university tell this magazine that the fire brigade is doing all it can to put out the fire that’s burning down the side of the Tower that was spared by the first outbreak. This follows a heavy fire outbreak on Saturday night that burnt down the iconic Ivory Tower.
According to Police, the fire which broke out in the wee hours of Sunday, is believed to have started from the roof spreading to floors that house both records and finance departments.
Besides the office Prof Nawangwe and other administrative offices, the building holds student records. The basement is full of archive files spanning the whole history of the institution.
“A lot of property has been destroyed. Investigations are ongoing to ascertain the exact cause of the fire,” a police statement reads. Below is the video of the current fire out break. Source; Charles Etukuri/Twitter
