Makerere University Ethics and Human Rights students upped their game practicing ‘witchcraft’ in broad daylight.
On Monday, the students walked on bare feet demonstrating against the scrapping off of Bachelor of Ethics and Human Rights courses.
Makerere university administration recently held a course restructuring process review where the Bachelors of Ethics and Human Rights was made a subject.
The affected students raided the administration building aka Ivory Tower demanding for an explanation.
On Wednesday, the students resolved to apply more traditional means of persuasion hoping management would be bent to their will.
They carried calabashes and pots before besieging the main building.
Dressed like witchdoctors, the students invoked the gods and spirits of “the dead” to force the administration reinstate their course.
In short, they turned Uganda’s most prestigious institution into a temporary shrine.
However, the decision to commune with the spirits did not go well with police which decided to break up the gathering, rounding some of the “sangomas” and throwing them on a police van.
The students say the administration has not even responded to their demands
The disappointed learners and have taken matters into their own hands
The students also backed Makerere Institute of Social Research lecture Dr Stella Nyanzi for staging a naked protest saying administrators have a tendency of taking them for granted.
