Parents, guardians and other stakeholders in Kasese district want the government and relevant partners to intervene for better services at Kenyange Muslim Primary School in Karusandara sub county Kasese district in western Uganda which is currently operating with only 5 learners and 11 teachers.
It has seven classes from p.1 to p.7, but the only active classes are three since January 2022 whereby Primary One has only two pupils, two in Primary Two and only one in Primary Three. All the five pupils sit in one classroom as sometimes teachers are away.
RISE NEWS UGANDA has established that teachers at Kenyange Primary School report on duty at their will since many of them stay in Kasese town, according to the deputy head teacher Mr. Faishal Muhindo.
Mr. Elias Byamungu, the Kasese District Chief Administrative Officer-CAO says he also recently learnt about the Kenyange Muslim Primary School incident during his familiarization tour in Karusandara, and a report about the incident would be submitted to
the Ministry of Education & Sports to determine the next course of action. The teachers have continued to get government money in terms of monthly salaries.
