Siperia Mollie Saasirabo was one of the outstanding students in the recent 15% Makerere University tuition increment strike that started in the middle of October. She has been all over the media for a good time now as a result of her engagement in the strike.
She was suspended but later reinstated by the students disciplinary committee but the university vice chancellor said he was not satisfied with the decision of the committee and appealed.
The student yesterday came out to claim for her rights and status to stay in the institution. She has accused the vice chancellor, Professor Barnabas Nawangwe for his bad intentions of ‘wanting to make her lose both her scholarship and status’ in the institution.
She added that the vice chancellor is looking for all the ways he could to terminate her future.
“Today, I was served with a memorandum of appeal from Makerere University that Nawangwe is dissatisfied with the Disciplinary Committee hearing and he has made an appeal to the University Council so that my case is heard again.” She communicated through one of her social media platforms.
On top of this, she added that she would be too glad if the university could compensate all the money she incurred during this resolution and also for the time she wasted in what she referred to as purposeless calls by the university towards her for the case hearings that she was involved.
She says she won’t go off road as she still counts on her dream of making Makerere a better place for all the students. She only remains with the law as her weapon to fight her war.
