MUK strike called off

Makerere university students have called off their Strike after a meeting with the Vice Chancellor Prof. John Dumba.

In the meeting, Prof. Dumba agreed to recall students he suspended for allegedly stealing cutlery from the university hall’s kitchen.

Dumba suspended 15 students yesterday on grounds that they stole 200 forks, vandalized property, and poured cooked food.

The situation turned violent at Makerere University where students are now throwing stones at the police.

Early this morning, the students went on strike protesting against two issues; the first being the suspension of 15 of their colleagues over alleged theft and the second reason they are giving is the suspension of teaching by their lecturers.
