Police is currently deployed at Kyambogo University where students have staged a strike.
From what we gathered, the students are protesting the lack of enough infrastructure at the country’s second biggest institution.
The placards they carried across the campus allege the lack of enough lecture rooms and chairs.
They claim to have reached an extent of sitting on the floor during lectures.
Government sponsored students claim their allowances paid per semester have delayed too long.
Others accuse their lecturers of adamantly refusing to release results of the tests they have sat as well as last semester’s exams.
As is the norm, students tried to march to the Banda township to spread havoc on unsuspecting businesspeople but police moved fast and blocked them.
Police was forced to try out its teargas in order to disperse the rowdy crowd.
The entrances and exits to the campus were all sealed off.
Police has managed to contain the situation and restore calm.
Kyambogo strike comes a day after Makerere university students staged a strike against the “unfair 100% in 6 weeks fees policy”.
The university was forced to extend payment deadline after students beat up their guild president, Bala Bwiruka, and branded the Vice Chancellor, Ddumba Ssentamu, a member of an illuminati cult.
