With the government order of all higher educational institutions to close down for the second time, as part of wider efforts to slow down the spread of the coronavirus, thousands if not millions of students were left feeling stranded and frustrated.These lockdowns have been extremely challenging for universities and students, and the disruption is likely to persist beyond the rollout of a vaccine.

Having taken lessons from the initial lockdown, some universities and other institutions of learning decided to adopt the online distance learning in order to ensure continuity in learning. Unfortunately it is not successful all since it benefits some and not all students.

Odochi Emma, a second-year student of Procurement and logistics management at Kyambogo University, says he was disappointed that he had to leave the campus without completing his semester, yet again.  

“It was the same situation last year when President, Yoweri Museveni, closed education institutions. We were just about to sit our exams. Now we had to return home. It is so frustrating,” says Odoch

Odoch joined the university in August 2019 and he had hoped to conclude his qualification in May 2022 but he is not even sure when he will complete his second year.

On scale, all university students country wide have tried to join voices to persuade the government to open them up but all in vain. This has worsened the worries among them because it’s putting their completion of studies at stake.
However Students still demands for vaccination while they are at xul .
