Seems the tension at Makerere University is not yet to end any time soon following news of 9 students who Makerere University Management has suspended and 26 others warned following chaotic scenes at the University stemming from the 15% tuition increment.
This comes at a time when the Guild president was arrested earlier in the morning after appearing for a talk show on the Kamwokya based NBS Tv which resulted into more tension leading to running battles with tear gas by police.
According to the University’s website and social media channels, the list of those suspended and warned is embedded in the tweet below.
In light of the recent students' unrest and protests, Management has taken disciplinary action on some students.

It should be noted that following the suspension of Molly Siperia Saasirabo, a guild representative who led the female students in the first phase of the on-going strike, student’s gained momentum of protesting as calling for termination of Molly’s suspension was also added on the demands they wanted management to handle.
