Fire Guts Makerere University Main Building

Ivory tower - Makerere University

The iconic Main Building of Uganda’s number one higher learning academic institution Makerere University, well known as the Ivory Tower has caught fire this morning.

The cause of the fire has not been yet established.

The fire brigade is on ground with everyone trying their best to rescue some property from the heavy flames sprouting from the right side of the Building that has so far destroyed the side’s roof and forced to sink in.

It should be noted that the Ivory tower houses a number of sensitive offices such as the office of the Vice Chancelllor, Audit and finance offices among others. We all need to pray for the Ivory Tower.
