KAMPALA- Prof Baryamureeba, the Council chairman of Makerere University Business School has Tuesday left the university under tight police protection, following a demonstration by students.
Prof Baryamureeba was at the university to attend a Council meeting which prompted the students to riot demanding his resignation.
The students camped at the main building, where the meeting was taking place, chanting slogans and displaying placards inscribed with anti Prof Baryamureba messages.
Police, however, frustrated their effort to storm the meeting.
The students said the former presidential candidate is a “failure” who has “sabotaged development” in the university as well as making academic growth in the campus futile.”
“We are talking about all this and we hope that you [students] can calm down. We want to make sure that a final decision is reached and we find solution,” Mr Julius Ntende, the guild president, said.
Last week, a similar meeting that was attended by student leaders, council members and other administrators of the university allegedly agreed that today’s meeting would not be chaired by Prof Baryamureeba.
The students say they were “shocked” to see him arriving to attend the Tuesday meeting.
“This prompted us to raise our voices,” Mr Ismail Mivule, a Bachelor of Statistics student said.
