Led by Samuel Mugarura aka Falcao, the students expressed their displeasure by using placards that had different messages to President Yoweri Museveni, Police chief Kale Kayihura, Electoral Commission Boss Badru Kiggundu and to the crime preventers.

“We Makerereans are tired of Musevenism,” reads one of the placards in part.

The students accuse Kiggundu of being partisan, representing the ruling National Resistance Movement and asked him to “Be Clear”

On December 16, the same activists had given Kayihura an ultimatum of 48 hours to produce a report about the Ntungamo clashes or else they would go on strike.

After seeing no report given, the angry students demanded that Kayihura resigns saying he has failed to perform his duties as the Chief of Police.

They attacked the crime preventers that are led by Kamugisha Blaise also a Makerere student of law saying that the crime preventers are a disgrace to Uganda.

While addressing a press conference on Wednesday last week, the activists said that they had gathered a group of over 2000 students from different institutions that would demonstrate in case Kayihura didn’t produce the report that they were demanding for.
