Fees Strike: The Voices Makerere Ignored Lumumba Hall 5 5 Top story

As the fighting and firing of teargas at Makerere scales down, there’s one voice whose lone idea was ignored as the University passed the now controversial fees policy last year. It is this policy that triggered a strike on October 22, which has since turned violent, with a joint force of the military and the police personnel raiding students’ halls of residence and battering those suspected to be part of the strike. Perhaps all this could have been avoided had Makerere listened to one lone voice, that of Marion Kirabo, a 23-year-old student of Law at the university. Kirabo, now in her 4th year of study, may not be a household name but she has been a leading voice on the “tuition must fall” campaign.
