Ugandan universties march in solidarity with Garissa attack victims

13 April 2015, 15:51 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Students from various universities in Uganda have carried out solidarity marches and rallies in protest against the killing of Garissa university students in Kenya by Al Shabaab militants.

It was started by the oldest and biggest university in the country, Makerere university.

Led by their guild president, David Bala, the students marched through the streets of Kampala denouncing militant actions.

They carried placards reading: ''To hell with Al Shabaab,'' ''Stop killing innocent people,'' and ''We are together with Garissa university and Kenyans.''

''We marched in big numbers and walked through several streets in Kampala before we went to the Kenyan embassy and handed over our condolence message to Colonel Julius Nyera who represented the Kenyan high commissioner to Uganda,'' said Umar Kato, one of those who organized the function.

Other universities and institutions of higher learning in the country also followed suit and either marched within their compuses or held rallies in which they condemned the attack on Garissa university.

''We collectively condemn the killing of fellow students at Garissa university. It is unfortunate that the militants have now turned to killinng innocent unarmed students,'' said Aron Kabata, a student at Busoga university.

A student leader at Busitema university, Dennis Ojambo said, ''What happened to the students of Garissa university can happen in any university in Uganda and therefore there is need for unity to condemn the activity and also for our countries to combine efforts to fight and eliminate Al Shabaab.''
