About 50 students were arrested by police and military over participation in a strike at Makerere University Tuesday.

Windscreens were crushed, car tyres burnt in different corners of the university and property vandalized within and in the outskirts of Makerere. Anti-riot Police used teargas, water cannons and gunshots to disperse the students who had started looting merchandise from the neighborhoods of Kikoni and Wandegeya.

One Police Officer was also injured by a bottle thrown by students from Douglas Villa Hostel in Kikoni Makerere.

Students were protesting the refusal by lecturers to teach them. Lecturers put down their tools earlier in protest of non payment of their incentive.
