Fred Enanga, Police spokesperson says that they immediately instituted inquiries into acts of indecent practice.
In a statement released on Friday by the police, they noted two teachers by the names of Mr. Joseph Nsubuga and Ms. Lydia Nabakka. The two are facing charges of neglect to Prevent a Felony, C/S 389 of the Penal Code.
“All teachers charged with the duty of superintending students in school must exercise reasonable supervision over them and the attendant circumstances. In this instance, instead of warning the students, they left them to behave in an egregious and unsafe manner,” Enanga stated.
He further added that the teachers did not properly supervise the students during the field trip. Therefore, the police recommended that the school immediately suspends the students involved in the indecent behavior.
This also includes those those who recorded and posted the video on social media. Enanga said this will teach the students a lesson to behave in a responsible manner.
The police also recommended that the students should receive counseling. This is from probation officers in charge of the area upon their return to school.
According to Enanga, the bus carried 73 students, which exceeded the sitting capacity of 67 students.
“Although the driver did not solicit the number of students, which is excusable, it was not appropriate for the school to assign only two teachers, who failed to properly supervise the bus activities,” Enanga said.
