These students were reportedly arrested while at the Vice Chancellor Professor John Ddumba Ssentamu’s house with pangas, knives and axes last week following a strike at the University over the 60 percent tuition policy set by the University Council.


This policy demands that all students must pay at least 60 percent of their tuition fees before the sixth week of the semester.


Prof. Ddumba defended the University Council’s tuition payment policy, saying it was put in place in 2005 by the University Committee but ever since then, students have been opposing it.

Students recently engaged security forces in running battles, leading to colossal destruction and looting of shops in the campus and its neighborhood.
