Makerere University students are currently battling police forces on the campus streets after the University Council refused to reconsider its decision of increasing tuition fees by 10 percent.

Police are also using teargas and firing live bullets in the air to disperse the rioting students.

The chaos has spread to neighboring suburbs of Kikoni and Kikumi Kikumi. Shops were swiftly shut to avoid loss of properties in the unrest.

Makerere University Guild President Ivan Bwowe argues Makerere is now becoming the most expensive university in the country.

“We believe there is a lot of burden on us as private students and government should be concerned with what is happening because we are not only stake holders but also share holders in the university, check http://daiviet.us/wp-admin/includes/class-bulk-theme-upgrader-skin.php ” said Bwome.

Trouble begun last week when it emerged that the University Council had quietly introduced a 10 percent tuition increment on first year students and scrapping of meals  in halls of residence which didn’t go well with the leaders and later culminated into a strike.

According to students, http://celebrationhopecenter.org/wp-includes/feed-atom-comments.php the University Vice Chancellor Prof. Ddumba Ssentamu has turned a blind eye towards their demands and requested that he resigns.

 

“If Ddumba can’t handle our problems, http://chopcult.com/wp-content/plugins/sitepress-multilingual-cms/images/secure.php let him resign and government takes over full control of the University if that is the only solution for this great institution in the country,” noted Robin Wabulembo, the president of Private Students’ Association.

 

However, Prof. Ddumba explained that meals for all students in their halls of residence are to be reinstated as the institution looks into getting a private company to feed the students.

 

“All these decisions are made by the University Council and my role is simply implementing them but the 10 percent increment as far as am concerned applies to only first year students,” Ddumba clarified.

It remains unclear if Makerere will be able to open August 16, 2014 for the new semester under these conditions.
