Hundreds of students and visitors were turned away from Kyambogo University on the first of the presidential nominations on Monday because of showing up without face masks. Those turned away tried to access the university from Kyambogo police station gate, national council for higher education gate, department of art and design gate and Kabaka road. 

The said entrances are usually manned by Kamed Security Company, a private Security Company. However, because of the two day’s presidential nomination, they are now accompanied by other security agencies like police and soldiers. Despite the presidential nomination taking place at Kyambogo sports ground, the few students who made it into the university were allowed to access their lecture rooms.  

Earlier on, the Kyambogo University Vice-Chancellor, Professor Elli Katunguka had communicated the suspension of all university activities. Kyambogo University has already entered in the books of the Health Ministry after one of the staff in the office of Dean of vocational studies tested positive for COVID-19. His nine contacts have since been isolated.

Isaac Erase, a private security guard with Kamed Security Company told URN that one of their bosses briefed them on Sunday indicating that COVID-19 has already entered the university and advised them to enforce the Standard Operating Procedures-SOPs. Erase notes that they were directed to be extra careful and make sure that whoever accesses the premises have their masks on and endeavour to hand wash/sanitize. 

A female security guard at Kabaka road gate told URN condition of anonymity that students had started relaxing on the COVID-19 prevention measures to an extent that most of them come without masks and don’t sanitize their hands. She hopes that whoever comes on Tuesday will have their mask on or else they will be turned away.
