The conductors were installed in eleven Primary and secondary schools in the municipality. However, the conductors in six schools have so far been stolen in Kigungu, Lugonjo and Manyago Primary Schools leaving school children vulnerable to lightning.
In a statement to staff issued at around 9pm, Deus Muhwezi Kamunyu, the MUASA Publicist, said they will hold an emergency general assembly on Thursday December 15th at Makerere University to deliberate on the agreed position by their executive.
Windscreens were crushed, fire lit in different corners of the university and property vandalized within and in the outskirts of Makerere. One Police Officer was also injured by a bottle thrown by students from Douglas Villa Hostel in Kikoni Makerere.
The students were unhappy about a decision by the management to deploy police and security guards at an illegal exit out of the school behind the boysâ€™ dormitories. The exit is nicknamed Cliff by the students.
The university council chairperson confirmed that they had closed down the university to enable investigations into alleged mismanagement of funds and abuse of office by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Omolo Ndiege, commence. All students have been ordered to leave the university by 4pm this evening.
This forced Lwengo district education officials led by Doreen Ankunda and Simon Peter Wafana, the Southern Region Police commander to close the school and order all students to return to their home until their concerns are addressed.
