The strike began on Monday morning with a group of students holding placards demanding the university administration to change its decision and allow them pay the fairly.
They tried to storm the office of the VC Sentamu but were blocked by police. “Dumba must go ,Dumba must go ” they chanted while chasing other students to join them.
Business had come to a standstill and lectures had stopped by press time.
