Meanwhile, Mr. Edward Tabu, the Director of His Will Junior School Bulenga is in police custody for preventing a candidate from sitting their Primary Leaving Examination due to unpaid school fees.
According to available information, Mr. Tabu had previously warned the affected candidate that she would not be allowed to sit for the exam unless her parents cleared the outstanding fees balance.
The arresting police officer who asked not to be named because he is not authorized to speak to journalists, said that when the school denied the candidate to sit exams, the parent took the matter to the police which tried to save the day by taking the girl to the centre where they are sitting.
He however, said that by the time they arrived there, the paper was nearly complete hence resulting in the arrest of the director.
UNEB Executive Secretary, Mr. Dan Odongo addressed the issue yesterday, urging schools not to deny candidates the opportunity to take exams. END
