Police in Kisoro are holding 100 students of Kabindi Secondary School in Nyarusiza Sub County, Kisoro district following a violent strike that paralyzed the school on Monday.

The strike involved senior three and four students contesting a decision by the school administration to cancel a planned study tour to Kasese district.

Francis Nkurunziza, the school deputy head teacher says that although administration had organized a study tour, the Parent Teachers' Association-PTA called for its cancellation on the argument that the school is financially unstable.

However, the students turned rowdy upon hearing the development and pelted stones which destroyed classroom and office windows. Police used teargas and live bullets to disperse the students. 

Hussein Ssemakula, the Officer-in-charge of Kisoro Police Station says that all the arrested students are detained at Kisoro police station pending prosecution.

Emmanuel Munvaneza, the Kisoro District Inspector of Schools accuses the students of using a wrong method of expressing their concern.
