KIU, Western Campus – The KIU Western Campus Guild Union has rubbished reports by a local online outlet that there is unrest at the campus and that it had organized a strike on Monday, March 21.
In a letter dated March 21 and signed by the Guild President, Juma Muluya, Vice-President, Moses Cooper Otim (in the picture) and the Guild Speaker, Jackline Namutebi, the union described as “a total falsification” the reports published in Campus Bee, an online university news website.
“The purpose of this letter is to address the portrayed dubious activities in the notice issued earlier this week. This came to our notice that unidentified people implicated the Guild Union to have initialized and permitted the above mentioned activity (bloody Monday) to occur,” reads the letter in part.
“Therefore using the designated powers entrusted to the Guild Union and authority, we denounce the occurrence of this activity with immediate effect,” it adds.
The union goes ahead to advise students against condoning such actions like striking, which would only derail their academic progress.
On March 19, Campus Bee reported that a section of KIU Western campus students were planning on demonstrating against poor learning conditions and unfair policies at the campus.
