Fifteen students of Makerere have been arrested today for protesting the 15 percent cumulative tuition increment which the university council approved last year.
Led by the vice president Judith Nalukwago, the students were trying to march to the President's Office to deliver a petition imploring government to scrap off the policy.
“This university is for poor students. Those who increased the tuition have their children studying outside this country. Mr President please halt this policy and relieve us,” Nalukwago said.
