Kabale District security department has resolved to reinstate and maintain the heavy deployment at two secondary schools after receiving threats that Kigezi High School may return to revenge the death of their Senior Five student.
On Sunday at around 9 pm, students of Kigezi High school attacked fellow colleagues of Nyabikoni Secondary School which led to a fight which led to the death of Rogers Bakashaba.
28 students of Kigezi High school and one from Nyabikoni Secondary School were later arrested for questioning as inquiries to establish the cause of the attack are underway.
Now, the district security department led by the Kabale district Resident Commissioner Darius Nandinda, the Kigezi Regional commander Ecega Richard and the Kabale district Police commander Brian Ampaire during an engagement meeting with students and School administrations on Monday decided to maintain the heavy deployment at both schools in order to avoid any re-occurrence of violence and attack.
Mr Nandinda said that the security shall remain at Kigezi High to assess the behavior of students after receiving threats that the school wants to revenge the death of their colleague. He added that security shall also remain deployed at Nyabikoni secondary school to protect the students. Nandinda also ordered that normal classes at Kigezi High school should kick off on Tuesday.
The Kigezi regional Police spokesperson Elly Maate said that the police shall continue engaging students of both schools on how to handle themselves until when the situation becomes better.
