University Hostels

Eviction Notice Leaves 230 Uganda Martyrs Students Stranded

Uganda Martyrs University students are stranded as their hostel is to be taken by the Bank after the owner failed to pay a loan he got.

Imagine starting your new semester all excited, only to be told you have to leave your hostel in just 7 days. That’s exactly what around 230 students are going through right now. They’re in a tough spot because the person who owns their hostel couldn’t pay back a loan, and the bank took the building away. Here’s what’s happening:

Unexpected Eviction

Just as the students were getting used to their new place, they got a surprise. They were told they had to leave within a week. It’s like getting kicked out of your home all of a sudden. Uganda Martyrs University Students are to be evicted from the hostel they had just paid for and checked in less than 10 days at the start of the semester.

The person who owns the hostel had some money troubles. They couldn’t pay back the bank, so the bank took the hostel away. This caused a lot of problems for the students who were living there. In the Letter sent to the owner of the Building labeled “MAWOKOTA BLOCK 253 PLOT 34” located in NKOZI, MPIGI DISTRICT quotes that “The captioned property was pledged as security to our client and upon default in repayment obligation and all relevant notices being served, the property was advertised for sale and the advert period has since lapsed and the Mortgagor handed over the property to the Bank.”.

Here is the full Letter:

The bank didn’t have any other option, so they took the building back. This made things even worse for the students, as they had to find a new place to stay in a very short time.

Starting a new school year is a big deal, but these students had a rough start. The sudden eviction made it hard for them to focus on their studies, and they’re worried about where they’ll live now.

To make things even scarier, the people who were supposed to take care of the hostel disappeared. This left the students confused and not knowing what to do next.

It’s not just about finding a new place to live – the students have already paid money to stay in the hostel. Now they’re not sure if they’ll get that money back.

Imagine being stuck without a place to live and not knowing what to do. That’s how these students feel right now. They’re trying to figure out how to fix things, but it’s not easy.

This whole situation shows how important it is to manage money properly. It also reminds us that we should be ready for unexpected things in life.

In tough times, people often come together to help. Students, teachers, and others are trying to support the evicted students by finding them places to stay and helping them get through this tough time.

What’s Next?

Efforts are being made to find a solution. People are talking to the bank and others to see if there’s a way to help the students and make things better for them.

This situation teaches us that we need to be careful with money and have plans in case things go wrong. It’s a tough lesson, but an important one.

Even in difficult times, there are stories of people helping each other. These stories remind us that even when things are tough, kindness and support can make a big difference.

The situation with the students facing eviction from their hostel is a reminder that financial problems can affect many people. It’s also a lesson in how we can come together to help each other in times of need.
