Makerere student makes less toxic teargas
Samuel Mugarura, a third year student of Chemistry and Botany at Makerere University, has left his colleagues with eyebrows raised when he unveiled his new innovation of tear gas.
Mugarura demonstrated his innovation in Kajjansi on Sunday morning.
During the demonstration, Mugarura said his IED tear gas is less toxic compared to those being used today by the police.
He added that the tear gas is made up of ingredients that are at everyone’s disposal, yet it’s effective.
“This teargas is made up of sugar, salt and food colour, among others, that can do not cause health complications like the one being used by the police today,” he explained.
The University Hall resident also says he can make smoke bombs but lacks facilitation and therefore called upon the government to financially support his projects.
