Stella Nyanzi together with her professional lawyer identified as Isaac Ssemakadde were very excited after winning a case that has lasted for 9 years (since 2011).
Therefore, Stella declared that she won the underdogs at Makerere Institute of Social Research who are bullied by Prof Mahmood Mamdani.
“I am delighted by yesterday’s ruling of Lady Justice Lydia Mugambe. I won this case for myself. My lawyer – Isaac Ssemakadde won this case for me and mine. We won for the underdogs at Makerere Institute of Social Research who are bullied by Prof Mahmood Mamdani. We won this case for the downtrodden and abused employees at Makerere University who are penalised for daring to challenge authoritarianism and abuse of power. We won for all those junior academics oppressed by senior professors who are protected by the fat cats running our universities. We won against the nepotism, meddling and political interference of Janet Kataaha Museveni in the management and administration of public universities. We won this case for posterity, for our jurisprudence in Uganda and for histories of labour rights in the world. I have waited for this particular justice since 2011 when Prof Mahmood Mamdani started compromising my employment contract with Makerere University. I sought redress and justice from ALL the powerful offices at this public university, to no avail for five long years. I wrote hundreds of letters that were ignored. I multiple filed appeals for help that were derailed. I sat in meetings where my challenges were dismissed because of the power asymmetries. Nobody wanted to touch the mighty professor, even when they admitted he was violating my contract. And when the employment violations deteriorated to the point of getting evicted from my office, I boldly staged my nude protest against the systemic rot at MISR, in 2016.” Stella Nyanzi wrote.
