In a statement issued via his page, Bobi discredited the Makerere administration for disregarding the rights of students in the opposition.

“I am shocked by the information coming from Makerere University indicating that its administration has arbitrarily suspended 3 students who are vying to contest for Guild presidency on the NUP ticket. The students — Mwesigwa Calvin Mugambwa, Bbosa Edwin Price, and Katushabe Kenneth — have been suspended ostensibly on account of a students’ assembly they attended last Friday; an act the University claims is unlawful,” Bobi said in a statement.

“It is evident that the students’ suspension is part of a wider scheme by the regime, acting through its functionaries within Makerere’s administration, to clamp down on otherwise lawful student activity that it considers a threat to its existence. Our legal team is already engaged to challenge this latest affront to academic freedom!,” he added.

Meanwhile, the Vice Chancellor Prof Nawangwe’s assistant Gordon Murangira says he will fight tooth and nail till the NUP party is totally wiped off Makerere University.

“We don’t tolerate hooliganism. NUP is associated with hooliganism and disrupting University peace. We will ban their activities till further notice,” Murangira Gordon, PA to Nawangwe bragged. “NUP is teaching students bad behaviors like Marijuana and drug abuse,” he added.
