Parliament has summoned the ministers of defense,internal Affairs, Security and Education to  answer for actions and presence of the Police and army respectively at makarere students halls .

The summons issued by the speaker of parliament Rebecca Kadaga after a motion was moved by Igara west mp Rapheal Magyez and  passed, condemning the brutality and human rights abuses at Makerere university students by the military .

Angry members of parliament wandered why the military treat students like rebels.

For the past one week, tempers have been flaring at Makerere University with ugly scenes of police and military breaking into students’ halls of residence in a crack-down of students who have held protests over the increase of fees.

Students demanded that the university halts the cumulative fees increment, reinstates its suspended colleagues and revise the guild electoral laws among others.
