Museveni Sends Them Back
Just a very quick update on the Makerere Chancellor race that I have been covering since the interview process began. The President has refused to choose between his VP and the deputy-head of Social Security, and has asked the governing body to re-open the nominations. He was clearly put in an impossible position and resented the fact that he was being asked to do the job of the panel for them (they were supposed to only send one name forward for simple confirmation). Expect this to drag on but my instinct is that the VP now won't get the post as a less controversial appointment is sought.
