Over 800 students have been suspended by Sebei College Tegeres in Kapchorwa District for two weeks for engaging in a violent strike.

The school administration reportedly failed to show the English Premier league game between Chelsea and Manchester United on Saturday evening.

Letter from the school

The suspended students are from Senior one, two, three and five. They will return after serving the two weeks of suspension with a payment receipt of Shs103,000.

“The magnitude of the destruction is big and therefore you are expected to pay Ugx103000 including the bank charge as a cost for repairs. The money should be channelled directly to the school account using school payment codes issued earlier to every student.” Said Headteacher Frederic Chesang as quoted by Daily Monitor

“They watched the first half of the match and during the start of the second half, power went off and the generator developed technical complications. The students could not understand that and instead started striking,” he said.

Chesanga added that the students destroyed water pipes, doors, windows, CCTV cameras, adding that they have started investigations.

“We were disappointed by the students’ misconduct at the time they should be preparing for the end of year examinations,” he added.
