Today was an interesting day as I entered campus at Makerere. It seemed like there was a lot more police than usual. They usually have about 6-7 police officers at the main gate, but today there was around 30. I later learned that there was a student protest. It is quite intimidating, as protests are more common here in Uganda, and so you often see riot police around town. As you can see from the picture below, they are quite intimidating. They also are a lot quicker to use tear gas than they are back home.
