MAKERERE – Makerere University authorities have Friday, November 1, reinstated 13 students out of the 15 students that were engaging in disruptive activities and breaching University Students Regulations.
In a number of letters seen by this website, Prof. Barnabas Nawangwe, the University Vice-Chancellor had accused the students of masterminding strikes and illegal actions which are in breach of the University policies
The said riots started after the university council approved the 15 tuition increment also backed by the guild leadership.
Some of the students who stood against the increment were suspended by Prof Nawangwe in what he termed as a move aimed at ensuring safety and security of members of the University community and property.
He also accused students such as Frank Bwambale a journalism student of sharing “inflammatory and derogatory messages on social media, calling for defiance and acts that could cause injury to persons and property of the university.”
However, some students such as Asiimwe Nkamushaba, a second-year student of Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Engineering have been reinstated through court orders.
Others students back include Frank Bwabale who was suspended for sharing inflammatory stories, former guild candidate Johnson Emmanuel Obbo, Ronald Baligwe and Kassim Njalira.
John Kisitu, Ronald Barigye, Ian Ndamwesige, David Musiri, Roy Rugumayo, James Chombo, Adit Mark Raymond and Daniel Kituno also part of the reinstated team but asked to write apology letters.
For Julius Muyambi Mbabazi and Obed Obedgiu Kwokuboth Jalmeo, their fate is yet to be determined by the University disciplinary committee.
