It’s now close to 3 months ever since the president in his first COVID-19 address of the nation ordered for the immediate closure of all academic institutions and this was done with immediate effect 2 days after his speech.
Students property theft was one of the major threat to the students from higher institutions of learning as it is not the same case as the lower secondary and primary schools who don’t take too many stuff to school.
Various reports have been reaching the desk of The Ugandan Daily but today afternoon we’ve come across a report of two Makerere University Business School (MUBS) students whose property was stolen and only remained with bed frames in the room.
The two who had come back to pickup some of their clothes but were supraised to find most of their stuff taken by unknown people. Argieh Amulen and Nakiyemba Goretti are the victims and they’re both students at MUBS.
“When I reached the gate I told the askari I wanted to pick something from my room, he let me in but upon reaching my room it was open and only it see most things were missing.” Says Goretti who later called her roommate to talk about what had happened.
She the quickly reached out to the custodian hoping probably they had fumigated or transferred the items to the store of sorts. But the custodian was seemingly in the same state of surprise as she claimed no knowledge of the rooms being opened by the hostel personnel.
The two filed police case and investigations kicked off claiming that items including a flat screen TV, refrigerator, beddings, mattress, gas cylinder among other items were stolen from their rooms.
The hostel name where all this took place is known as Betham hostel located in Nakawa.
