” Let all the students know that KUSO’s leadership
has exhausted all diplomatic and peaceful mechanisms of getting the HELB loans
released, and thus we are left with no other option except to invoke the ruthlesscomrades’power,” said Manyara.
He added, ” That an invitation be sent to all students, parents, guardians and even lecturers to
join in weekly nationwide students’demonstrations EVERY FRIDAY until HELB Loans are deposited to students’ accounts,” he said.
He said that KUSO has always strived to be a voice of reason between students and their
corresponding institutions as well government agencies such as HELB.
” Through continuous engagements, a lot have been achieved. However, the all-important matter of timely HELB loans’ disbursement remains a thorny issue with the bodies concerned
carelessly shifting blames from office to office while students mercilessly suffer,” the tough talking President said.
