Walking through Makerere University feels like a free world out of restrictions - though the constraints on campus are obvious as stipulated in the University’s rules and regulations. However, the story differs when you get to the University halls of residence.
The peculiarity of life is that no one can, and no one will ever be able to know what the new day has in store for them. Chances are high that it could be your regular Tuesday spent lounging in your room and attending a lecture or two, but the possibility that something exorbitantly life-changing could occur is equally high. All residents of Lumumba hall, especially Richard Ssebuganda, bore witness to this peculiarity on Tuesday 8th February 2022.
12 Makerere University students have been suspended over participating in a protest against bended learning. The students protested against the institution's blended system of teaching on Monday 7th February, 2022 an act that led to the suspension of some students by Vice Chancellor Barnabas Nawangwe.
