Gulu University Students threaten to Strike over Water Shortage

It is not all well as we write this in Gulu University as some of the students have threatened to strike over the increasing water shortage in and around University.

The water shortage has hit Gulu University for over two weeks now and students have resorted to picking water from the nearby wells and boreholes something which many feel isn’t right for the University’s community.

“There is no water here for two weeks, now what can you explain to me after paying lots of cash,” a one Ivan( not real names) told this website.

Reports continue to show a jerry can is being sold at ugx600 and many of the students feel cheated.

A few who have spoken to this website have threatened to strike if the water issue is not sorted out this week.

About Gulu University

Initially, the University was named the Gulu University of Agriculture and Environmental Science and was to specialize in agricultural mechanization.

However, it was later proposed that the University should widen its scope beyond agricultural mechanization and produce a high-level human resource that can effectively participate in solving the social and economic problems of the country. It was then renamed Gulu University.

From 2002 the University steadily increased its intake, faculties, and programs due to the demand to satisfy practical needs regionally, nationally, and internationally.
