Makerere University Dean of students’ letter dated 21st March 2022 suspended the freshers’ ball, bazaar, and porridge nights due to the chaotic nature of students during such events.

“Management resolved that the freshers’ ball, porridge nights, and bazaars are suspended indefinitely and these activities shall no longer be permitted at the University until further notice,” the Dean partly wrote in her letter.

This came after a chaotic night that saw the 87th Guild Freshers Ball end prematurely.

Eddy Kenzo was violently attacked and one of his team members, Fik Love was injured severely. He is currently undergoing medical attention.

However, we have come to learn that the chaos at the freshers’ ball was a result of the hall superiority complex and this is part and parcel of Makerere’s hall culture. It’s not yet clear when the suspension of the social events will end.

On the other hand, Makerere University Guild President Hon. Shamim Nambassa has blamed the chaos on Friday night on the Police’s ‘unnecessary retaliation’. “The havoc on the night of 18th March 2022 on the freshers’ ball was caused due to the unnecessary retaliation by police firing ammunition, teargas, and unselectively battering students. It is so regrettable that the police responsible for protecting our lives and the property was instead the cause of all injuries and havoc,” part of her response to the Dean reads.

Nambassa demanded the immediate reversal of the decision by the dean.
