Parliament demands report on planned reopening of Schools

Minister of Education and Sports Janet Museveni


Parliament has directed the Minister of Education and Sports to bring a comprehensive report to parliament on how the government plans to re-open schools.

This is after the Kalungu West MP Joseph Ssewungu who was raising a matter of national importance said that for two years learners in Kindergarten, Primary 1 to 3, and students from Senior One, Two, and Five have never attended classes.

Ssewungu says that some schools are dilapidated due to lack of activity while some learners especially girls have been married off.

 The Busia Municipality MP Geoffrey Macho noted that 80 percent of the children at the border districts are studying from neighboring countries. He wants the government to inform parliament on the plans they have.  

Deputy Speaker Annet Anita Among directed the Ministry of Education to bring a comprehensive report on school reopening.

 The Minister of state for higher education John Chrysostom Muyingo informed MPs that the government is still vaccinating teachers and has promised to bring a comprehensive report on the matter within one week
