A fire has engulfed the campus of one of Africa’s top universities in Kampala, Uganda.
Makerere University in a Facebook post states that, “The fire brigade is on ground. Everyone is trying their best. The fire is heavy and sprouting from the right side of the Building.”
“The fire flames are heavy coming through right side of the roof which has sunk in. We all need to pray for the Ivory Tower,” it adds.
The post however did not mention the cause of the fire.
Makerere University Vice Chancellor, Barnabas Nawangwe in a tweet said,”It is a very dark morning for Makerere University. Our iconic Main Administration Building caught fire and the destruction is unbelievable.”
“But we are determined to restore the building to its historic state in the shortest time,” Nawangwe adds.
