Mr Ssemboga was picked from the University’s main gate as he mobilized students to walk to parliament, to demand the immediate re-opening of the institution.

Police in Kampala have arrested Mr Roy Ssemboga, the guild president Makerere University.

Mr Ssemboga was picked from the University’s main gate as he mobilized students to walk to parliament, to demand the immediate re-opening of the institution.

He was arrested alongside four other students who are yet to be identified.

Makerere University’s head of security Mr Jackson Muchunguzi said the students were planning an illegal assembly at the university.

“As per our order, we do not expect students here. They are supposed to be with their parents, so we think these are imposters,” Muchuguzi said adding that they are still trailing for more who are still organizing their fellows in Kikoni.

President Museveni ordered the closure of Makerere University a week ago, citing concerns over the safety of persons and property. His directive followed hours of turbulence at Uganda’s oldest university
