The tense situation escalated on Thursday leading the students to abandon breakfast.

However, they were convinced to take lunch and supper respectively amidst heavy police deployment.

On Thursday night as students were in ‘prep,’ they started shouting which compelled police to fire teargas through classroom windows. This prompted the school authorities to send the students home.

The school Head Teacher, Yorokamu Kamaringo could not be reached by Chimpreports on Friday for a comment as he claimed to be in the meeting following the students’ dismissal.

However, one of the school administrators who spoke to this website but preferred anonymity said they feared that the situation would worsen and lead to a terrible strike.

This strike comes after students at Eden International in Kakika, Mbarara district rioted after the school adminstration denied male students opportunities to regularly meet their female counterparts.

The school fence was burnt before police intervened and arrested at least 17 students. They are currently detained at Mbarara Police Station.

There was also a strike at Kitagata SSS in Sheema district recently where students destroyed the school property worth millions of money. They were demanding for a study tour. The students were sent home for weeks but reported last Thursday.
