Mbarara High school has suspended all S.4 and S.6 candidates following a violent fight on Wednesday night. Police fired tear gas to stop the clashes between the learners from the two candidate classes.

A teacher told URN on condition of anonymity that the fight started when senior 4 students accused their senior 6 colleagues of assaulting their classmate. The fighting spilled into the neighboring community.

One of the students told URN that the fight broke out when a senior 4 student asked his senior 1 colleague to fetch him water, which he refused prompting him to beat him. He says that the deputy head boy tried to punish the senior 4 student, a thing that didn't go down well with his classmates.

Ezekiel Emitu, the Rwizi Region Police Commander, says that police responded to a distress call from the public citing misconduct by the students who  had blocked the Mbarara Bushenyi road and were looting merchandise from shops

Samson Kasasira, the Rwizi Region Police Spokesperson, says that 11 senior 4  students sustained injuries during the fight. Ten of the students are admitted to Ruharo hospital and another to homily hospital. Gidious  Kareetwa, the Mbarara City Inspector of Schools blames the clashes on bullying, which isn't acceptable.

By the time of filing the story, the school administration was locked in a meeting with the Board of Governors to decide the next step.
