By Racheal Nuwahereza
Police in Kazo have arrested at least 10 students of St. Peter’s Rweibugumya Secondary School in Burunga Sub-county, Kazo district over a strike where students destroyed school property worth millions of shillings on Wednesday night.
Innocent Sunday, the head teacher of the school intimated to Kazo FM that they had decided to suspend all the students for damages incurred whereby several properties including; the windows and door glasses, a 42-inch TV screen, Bursar’s and the Head teacher’s offices , and the school’s canteen were all broken by the angry students.
However, the security team led by AlHajji Umar Mawiya Lule, the Resident District Commissioner (RDC) Kazo district advised them to pick the ring leaders and continue with lessons.
It is said that the strike followed an incident where Rev Fr. Kanyesigye John Vianne, the sub-parish priest of Burunga Catholic Sub-Parish cut some students’ trousers arguing that they were too fitting and indecent which is not allowed, according to the school rules and regulations.
Mawiya Lule condemned the act of striking and confirmed the arrest saying the culprits are going to face the law accordingly.
