Students of Bukoyo Secondary School in Iganga have staged a violent strike destroying school property worth millions of shillings.
The students went on rampage last evening at 11pm to protest a power black out at the school for the past one week.
Johnson Olal, Iganga District Criminal Investigations Officer says that students vandalized a School truck, Coaster, school canteen and four computers in the school laboratory.
He says that the students also shattered glass windows and burnt several school chairs.
Olal says that the police arrived at the school when most of the damage had already been done.
He says that no student has been arrested in connection to the violent strike as investigations are ongoing.
Elvis Mutakoba, a senior three student who was in bed by 11 pm says that the strike begun after the students started arguing about the week long power black out.
He says that the students accused the school management of failing to address the power problem.
Mutakoba says that several students joined the argument, and within minutes the strike started.
Mizamir Iwumbwe Olwita, the headmaster Bukoyo S. S. says that power to the school was disconnected because of accumulated bills to the tune of shillings 23 million.
He says that the school administration has failed to clear the bills because of servicing huge debts.
Olwita says estimates that the property worthy shilling 100 million was destroyed by the rioting students.
He says that they have resolved to send home all students except those in the candidate classes who are preparing for their mock examinations.
