On Tuesday, more than 70 angry students raided the administration block and laid siege of the senate building demanding to have lectures at all costs.

The students tasked the administrators either to convince lecturers to teach them or allow them to go home instead of wasting time and resources when no academic work is going on.

Vice Chancellor, Prof Isaiah Ndiege agreed to let the students and all staff members vacate the University to allow room for fresh negotiations with all stakeholders.

By 6pm, majority of the students had started packing their possessions to return to their homes.

Kyambogo university staff has so far disregarded the Nakawa High Court’s ruling and the Inspector General of Police Maj. Gen. Kale Kayihura’s directive to accept Prof. Ndiege.

Meanwhile, Members of Parliament have suggested that Prof. Ndiege should give up the fight if the university is to settle.

According to MP Yahaya Odoki and MP Betty Mbabazi, the Prof. needs to accept that the staff is tired of him and try elsewhere.

The university council has decided to meet today and look into the issue again with a hope of resolving this misunderstanding.

More details are coming.
