President Museveni’s delay to officially announce when the schools will reopen has left parents, learners and school owners in suspense.
A September 2 letter from the Minister of
Education, Ms Janet Museveni, directed the Finance minister, Mr Matia Kasaija, to
provide capitation grants for government schools.
She indicated that they had agreed with the President Museveni and the national Covid-19 taskforce to reopen schools on September 20, starting with the candidate classes.
However, Ministry of Education officials have declined to confirm the reopening date and instead asked the public to wait for Mr. Museveni to announce the date. END
