Event

Over 270 students from the Law Development Centre (LDC) plan to gather in front of the LDC, located at Plot 339, on Gaddafi road in Kampala, on Thursday, November 21. The exact time for the protest remains unclear as of the morning (local time) on Thursday. Protesters who seek to demand the release of August examination results are then expected to march to the parliament building to present a petition.
