Besigye told the media at the party headquarters in Najanankumbi today that a decision was taken to suspend the planned demo after consultations with all key stakeholders including lecturers, viagra 40mg students, alumni, parents and guardians.

“10 days are left with today; after exchange of thoughts, we decided to come up with a way that will enable reopening of the university without shedding blood since some students were beaten up during the closure and others were arrested,” Besigye noted.

“We have decided to all gather at Makerere University Freedom square on Friday and collect money which we shall handover to the administration staff to pay off the lecturers,” Besigye said.
