Police have warned the aggrieved Kyambogo students who are dissatisfied with the court ruling to drop their plans of staging a demonstration on the graduation day set to kick off today.
In a joint meeting held at Kyambogo University on Monday afternoon, police revealed that they had received information that there were students who had planned to disrupt the graduation, because they are not satisfied with the court ruling.
On Friday Last week, the High Court in Kampala dismissed an application filed on September 14, 2021, by 45 students who sought a halt to the graduation ceremony fixed for September 21 to 23, 2021 because their names were missing from the list of graduands.
Mission Samuel, the Chief Security Officer of Kyambogo University, said that the preparations by security are in high gear and that they are set to handle whoever is trying to fail the graduation process.
He said that they got information that a group of students were planning to attend the graduation ceremony forcefully, adding that these students even bought graduation gowns.
Professor Eli Katunguka Rwakishaya, the Vice-Chancellor of Kyambogo University without mentioning the names, said that this group of people is motivated by some politicians and that they are using students who failed to fulfill the University requirements for them to be on the graduation list.
“These are students who failed exams and most of them had retakes, so they fear what they will tell their parents and guardians because they will not graduate with the rest. Such students should abort their plans of disrupting us because we are prepared for them” Katunguka said.
ASP Rogers Namanya, the East Kampala Metropolitan Police Acting Regional Traffic Officer told Journalists that Kyambogo University will be out of bound for the public and only the invited guests and those other authorized people will be allowed in the university.
ASP Namanya further cautioned whoever is using vehicles to follow the set Standard Operating Procedures-SOPs
