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.
According to a tweet posted on the University’s Twitter handle, @MakerereU, the fire was sprouting from the right side of building where part of the roof had sunk in. Moments later, the university tweeted;
“the fire has spread and covered all floors of the right side of the building.”
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.
