Abstract

This paper looks into the issues surrounding the students' strike at the University of Botswana in 2009. The variables considered included; gender, nationality, residence, attitude towards violence and support for the strike. There were 327 valid responses from the sample of 337 students across the departments and program levels. The Chi- square and Logistic Regression analyses were used to relate the variables. It was found that a culture of violence was brewing up among the male students in the university and there was poor communication between the students and the stakeholders which could have a negative effect on the long-term vision of the country.
