JUST IN: Security operatives invade student halls of residence. Terrorise students
On Tuesday, a section of Makerere University students peacefully demonstrated against the 15% Tuition Policy in what they termed as ‘Black Tuesday’.
Later in the day, over 50 students were reportedly arrested from the halls of residence after over 15 had been arrested by Police and fled to unknown destinations.
Latest info reaching our news desk indicates that security operatives have invaded halls of residence and beat up students.
The real time events at the Ivory Tower were reported by Guild President, H.E Kateregga Julius through his social media platforms where he later deleted the posts. “Security Operatives are terrorising Students Halls of Residence and causing body harm to them. Dear colleagues, stay safe. When your room has been broken into, use whatever is at your disposal to protect yourself. The Law will absolve you.” His deleted post read.
The demonstration was led by one of the GRCs known as Mollie Sasiraabo who was later in the day indefinitely suspended from the Ivory Tower.
