There is heavy police deployment at Hoima Nursing School in Kahoora division Hoima Municipality to prevent a planned student’s strike.

  Heavily armed anti-riot police led by Hoima District Police Commander, Christopher Katumba, rushed to the school this evening when students turned rowdy.  

Julius Hakiza, the Albertine Region Police spokesperson, says they received information that the students had turned rowdy to the extent of pelting stones at any person approaching the school premises. 

He says police will maintain presence at the school to ensure sanity to protect school property from destruction. 

He calls on students to remain calm as the District Security Committee handles their grievances against the school principal, Betty Pacutho Angujero. 

On Monday, the students staged a strike demanding for the immediate resignation and Transfer of the principal. They blocked the school main gate to restrict access. 

They accused the principal of among other things being behind the resignation of several tutors, poor meals, poor academic standards, corruption and above all being a dictator. 

 

This prompted the intervention of Hoima District Security Committee led by the Deputy Resident District Commissioner, Richard Tabaro and Albertine Region police Commander-RPC, Deo Obura. 

They rushed to the school and addressed the striking students and assured them that their grievances would be settled immediately. The committee summoned the school Principal for a meeting on Tuesday to respond to accusations leveled against her.
