Gulu University has finally lifted the indefinite suspension on over 1000 students of faculty of education and humanities over alleged participation in the violent strike that led to the burning of a university hall in May.
According to a press release authored by the Vice chancellor of Gulu University Prof Jack Nyeko Pelomogi dated 10th June, the university council which is the supreme decision making organ in its sitting on the 10th June 2016 decided to revoke its earlier decision.
Prof Pelomogi asserts that students shall have to report back to the university on the 15th of June 2016 but with tough stringent conditions set for them to sit for examinations which according to the university will begin on the 20th of June 2016.
For the students to access the university facilities and sit their examinations each of them must pay a fine of general damages of two hundred shillings which shall be used to facilitate the renovation of the burnt main hall and other property damaged during the strike.
The students went on strike on the 11th of May protesting the delayed release of the end of semester one examination results in the Faculty of Education and Humanities.
