MISH Hostel Bans Cooking Inside the Rooms

Student residents at Makerere International Students Hostel (MISH) are bitter following a decision by the management to abolish cooking inside the rooms following a recent fire outbreak.

Hostel administrators claim that the fire outbreak on October 11, which destroyed one of the rooms, was sparked off by a gas cooker. Two students --Aijuka Moureen and Apedat Brenda--were both rushed to the hospital and treated for shock after the fire outbreak on the 3rd floor in room M3-10 in which they resided.
