Kasese Resident District Commissioner, Lt. Joe Walunsimbi, reiterates his stance on arresting head teachers in public schools suspected of discriminating against learners who fail to pay development fees as agreed.

While not opposing reasonable and affordable payments by parents and guardians, Lt. Walunsimbi emphasizes that such decisions should not adversely affect the students.

Speaking at Kamaiba Primary School in Kasese Municipality today, Lt. Walunsimbi addresses education stakeholders, including parents, guardians, teachers, and local leaders. He calls for the arrests not to be politicized, as they are intended to uphold the education act, which head teachers are obligated to implement.

In a previous report, Rev. Benjamin Bwambale, the school’s head teacher, restates his request for all education stakeholders to collaborate in constructing additional pit latrine stances. The aim is to accommodate nearly two thousand pupils, as the current fourteen facilities are inadequate.

Mr. Emmy Kayiri, the Kasese Municipal Education Officer, urges teachers at the school to stay focused on their duties. He also calls on parents to set an exemplary standard for their children and meet their educational needs to ensure academic excellence.

Mrs. Saddres Muhindo, the School PTA Chairperson, emphasizes the need for a harmonious relationship between teachers and parents, as it directly impacts the moral and academic development of the innocent learners.
