He later moved to a nearby hostel which had no electricity and the students were complaining of how they have been in that situation since September last year.

At around 12:00am, the Minister had a meeting with the students in the school’s main hall where they presented all their grievances like lack of a Guild council since the former was dissolved after the strike, poor feeding. They complained that they feed on rice full of stones and beans with bean weevils’.

One student complained of few books in the library, nepotism, tribalism and segregation during the admission process well as others said that they are denied freedom to talk to the press and lack of facilities like computers pointing out that out of the ten computers in their laboratory only five are functioning.

However the Minister promised to solve these problems as soon as possible saying that they will not tolerate non-performing students. “The administration has been powered to dismiss any undisciplined student,” said Muyingo.

Otim, the Acting Principal told the students that they are free to come to him whenever there is a problem on matters of electricity in order to seat down with the Ministry of Education and have it solved.
