Makerere University should negotiate with parents and guardians to reduce strikes

This week has been horrendous. There has been student unrest at Makerere and Kyambogo universities. For Makerere, it marks another ugly tale that has come to haunt the university each time important steps are taken in the premier institution in the country and in the region. The same can be said of Kyambogo, which is dogged by severe student unrest.

Strikes Not a Sign of Makerere's Academic Collapse

Any shrewd mind has to bear in mind that a semester in Makerere is made up of four complete months, which means that those are 120 days of studying. In Makerere, demonstrations last for a maximum of 2 days. 120 days minus 2 days, there remains 118 days of serious studies. The question is: Do people accusing students of time wastage as themselves what students are doing in those days? Do they ask themselves?
