The recent construction if the road around the cab park in the Naraguta Campus has led to the scarcity and drastic reduction in the amount of cabs to convey students to their various destinations.
The construction of the road which started during the three months strike period has the led to the closure of the road that leads to the park for the time being. Therefore students who depend on the cabs to get to their destinations both far and near are forced to look for alternatives.
Some students have expressed their thought about the situation. In an interview with Praise Bako a 200 level English department student, He said that the scarcity of cabs has made the journey to the campus for the ongoing exams stressful for some students.
Students from places like Angwa Rukuba and Ring Road now have to use tricycles, stop by the Campus gate and walk down to their various faculties and departments instead of taking cabs that dropped them in very close or in front of their faculties.
Bako added that “The fact that this is examination period, a free flow of transportation to convey students to their various locations of examination is essential for punctuality and academic success”.
