Mbarara High School administration have suspended the S.6 and S.4 students after they were involved in a deadly fight that left 11 students seriously injured.
Samson Kasasira, the Rwizi Regional Police Spokesman says the fight broke out last night and that police had to be called in to calm the situation.
“We got a call from the members of the members of the public that Mbarara High school students had blocked the Mbarara-Bushenyi road and were looting people’s merchandise from shops,” he said.
“The Police anti riot units responded to the scene and dispersed students driving them back into the school premises where they were contained.”
The misconduct was reportedly sparked by a fight between S.6 and S.4 students, where the O level candidates accused their A level counterparts of assaulting their classmate and in retaliation the fight started, spilling over into the neighboring community.
Kasasira said that 11 students of S.4 sustained injuries during the fight and 10 of them have been admitted at Ruharo hospital, 1 student at Homily hospital all in Mbarara City for treatment
Kasasira says that the school administration has suspended all the S.6 and S.4 students for two weeks effective today and they have been escorted out of the school premises by security to go home.
