STUDENTS AT UGANDAN UNIVERSITY RIOT OVER DIRTY TOILETS

KAMPALA, There was commotion at Kyambogo University, Uganda's second largest institution of higher learning, here Tuesday as students from the Special Needs and Rehabilitation Department demonstrated with placards and others with sticks and tree branches to clog the campus's walkways in protest action aimed at seeking better sanitation.

In the melee, which lasted about two hours, students from the department accused the university administration of abandoning them for months to reeking lecture rooms and filthy broken toilets with no running water.

Emmanuel Mwanyi, the special needs student representative to the university's Guild Representative Council, said they had had enough of studying and living in totally uninhabitable environments.

The lecture rooms are damp, some corners have water seeping through and are mouldering. The place is bushy. At times we are in class and snakes crawl in, said Mwanyi, who led the protesters.

Vice-chancellor Professor Elly Katunguka could not be reached for comment. However, sources said the students suspended the protest after the university administration promised to clean the hall.
