The students protested at campus in the morning before moving to the office of the resident district commissioner to seek redress.

The worst affected are third year students who claim to have missed lectures in History, Economics, Geography and professional subjects of psychology and research.They say they have not had a single lecture since the beginning of the ongoing semester in august.

Geoffrey Lukwiya, one of the affected students says they have reliably learned that lecturers are not being regularly facilitated from Gulu University main campus.

The other students our reporters spoke to said missing the lectures has adversely affected their chances of success in the final year exams.

Stephen Komakech, the Gulu University Kitgum Campus Guild President said that only aggressive action will compel the University administration to immediately act on their outstanding grievances.

Stephen Opira, the Director of Gulu University Kitgum Campus was out of office to comment on the matter and attempts to get a comment from him on phone could not yield fruits. Other lecturers available at the campus refused to comment on the matter on record.

However, one of them who spoke on condition of anonymity said Gulu University Academic registrar Geoffrey Lam Too had called to assure the students of lectures on Tuesday. According to the source, the time left is more than adequate to process the students for their final exams.
