President Museveni has directed the military to vacate from Makerere University, ordering the police to handle the stand-off at the University. 

Museveni’s order comes shortly after speaking to various stakeholders at the university including Guild president Mr. Julius Katerega. 

Early today in the morning, Julius Katerega through his official Facebook page confirmed that he had held a phone conversation with the president to brief him on the status quo at the Hill and on the demands of the governed. However, he alleges that the president had been fed on falsehoods by some elements of University Management.

This development follows the US gov’t statement it issued condemning the violence of security services they used to attacked unarmed students to quell the protests that broke out last week challenging the 15% tuition increment.
