On 22nd June 2020, the Law Development Center (LDC) Students through their guild leaders both Kampala and Mbarara Campus petitioned Parliament through the Speakers Office to allow them continue with their Online Classes (E-Learning).
The petition follows parliament’s order stopping LDC from conducting Online studies. This comes after Hon Opuka moving a motion to stop LDC Online classes and was supported by the house. However, students believe that arguements put forward by Hon. Opuka were based on false allegations with claims that the center was prepairing to conduct online exams and students are subjected to pay 20,000/=
The guild leaders have strongly opposed the allegations and wish to state to parliament that there is nothing like online exams and payment of the said amount.
The speaker’s office received the petition which was also requesting audience with the speaker for the students to explain more as regarding the petition.
A further copy was served to the Education minister’s office at Embassy house.
“We believe we shall strongly achieve our best”, Namakajo Deric the Chief Justice LDC Mbarara campus said while adding that Adopting to the new normal is all they are left with.
