Kenyan students drag Muk to court over suspended colleague

1211 Views Kampala, Uganda
Kenyan students at Makerere have resolved to drag the university administration to court following the recent suspension of their colleague Kevin Wanjala over indiscipline. Silas Otuke the chairperson of the Kenya Students Association says they are resorting to court because they believe Wanjala is being victimized. Otuke argues that it is impossible that the vice chancellor could have singled out Wanjala for grabbing from him a microphone since they were over 100 students. Wanjala was suspended early this week by the Makerere University administration for allegedly blocking the vice chancellor Prof. Livingstone Luboobi from addressing them. Luboobi had convened a meeting with the students to address their demands for fees reduction and allegations of harassment by some lecturers. Meanwhile the Makerere university students have called off a peaceful demonstration they were to start this week. Otuke says that they opted out of the demonstration for fear of disrupting their end of semester exams that starts on Monday. //Cue ## We##.. Cue out##..It cost nothing// The Ugandan Concerned Students Association was organizing the demonstration to show solidarity with Kenyan students and protest against the suspension of Wanjala a third year IT student. 15 other students are reportedly lined up for suspension.
