Bobi wine the Mp ok Kyadonda commonly known as the leader of People power Movement commented on what the Army did to the ladies who were peacefully demonstrating over the 15% increase in their tuition.
In his words, bobi wine said , “Earlier today, female students’ leaders at Makerere University set out to hold a peaceful demonstration against a 15% tuition raise. They rose up to speak on behalf of so many poor students who end up having to drop out of university on account of very high tuition fees.
Instead of protecting their constitutional right to protest peacefully, the military was called in. Students, especially ladies, were roughed up and arrested. Others were brutalised and taken to jail. Information coming in shows that some are being dismissed from the University, while others have been given warning letters.
For starters, I must salute the courage of these young women. It gives me great pleasure to see women rise up to speak for social justice. This is evidence that our struggle has come of age- dictatorship and bad governance are in trouble.
In the same manner, I condemn the violent crackdown of a peaceful demonstration by unarmed students who are only expressing their frustration with an unfair and oppressive policy. It is not a crime to peacefully demonstrate! It is a right! Our struggle is about restoring fundamental human rights, as well as ensuring social justice for all citizens.”
