Students vow to disrupt lectures at Makerere University as strike enters the second week
A group of unidentified students has threatened to bring all lectures at Makerere University to a halt until concerns about the tuition policy are addressed. The individuals have vowed to vividly engage in the “Bloody Monday” protests and are expected to face off against the army and police who are bound to maintain law and order.
In a message circulating around social media, they urge all lecturers to suspend teaching and threaten to chase students out of lecture rooms in a bid to put the university administration on pressure. The strike is set to extend into the second week after a violent one in which numerous students were arrested, beaten, and some hospitalized.
The strike has extended beyond the confines of the university, with residents of Kikoni also facing the wrath of police as students are dispersed.
