Mbulamuti Primary School primary school which Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga attended has not registered a first grade in Primary leaving Examination (PLE) for the last 18 years.
Concerned, Kadaga wondered why Mbulamuti Primary School, despite having a qualified Head teacher and staff, continued to perform poorly.
Calling it a “big shame,” the Woman MP for Kamuli District called on all stake holders to turn around this sad state of affairs. “This is unbelievable. Where is the problem? My own school recording zero, zero, zero and zero close to two decades is outrageous,” Kadaga said.
Kadaga made the remarks during the ground breaking ceremony for the construction of a new four-classroom block and renovation of six classrooms at Mbulamuti Primary School in Mbulamuti sub-county on Monday.
The development follows the heavy storm which blew roofs off the class room blocks in 2016, leaving hundreds of pupils without shelter. The facelift of the school, located near the Speaker’s home, is being funded by the China International Water and Electric Company (CIWEC).
Kadaga said the challenge could be overcome with support from community. Statistics indicate that Kamuli is among the worst performing districts country wide
Kadaga pledged to do her best to see that not only Mbulamuti, but the majority of schools are supported to improve their performance.
