Government sponsored students at Mbarara university of science and technology (MUST) on Monday 20/02/2023 protested over the delayed release of their living out allowances. The allowances amount to ugx 800,000 shillings.
Bill Clinton Nasasira the University Guild President, says ever since this semester began in January 19th 2023, no government sponsored student has accessed his/her Living out allowance.
He adds that over 200 students have been locked out of their hotels rooms by the landlords.
Nasasira however called for calm and patience noting that the issues are before the administration.
By press time, efforts to get comments from the University vice chancellor, Prof. Celestine Obua were futile.
