Caring Does Not Mean You Tolerate The Wrong – UNATU Secretary General Filbert Baguma

The Secretary-General of UNATU Filbert Baguma was questioned during an interview on NBS TV about whether they feel remorseful towards Ugandan children for not getting services from them.

Filbert said that they actually do feel sorry that these children are not learning. However, because they care doesn’t mean they should let the wrong slide off.

Baguma further added that they do care about this country. Plus they also love the children because they are parents too. However, their voices of dissatisfaction must be heard and answered by all means.

“Mr. Baguma, do you really think about the children or this country?” NBS journalist Charles Mwanguhya asked. He replied “Yes, we care about the children. They are innocent. We care about this country too. That, however, does not mean letting wrong pass you by because you care.”

The guilt play card or whatever you want to call it is one of the tools government has employed to relax this strike. A number of government officials have really tried to make these teachers feel guilty about not teaching.

These have been told to think about the innocent learners who are suffering in all this. These teachers have however stood their ground and seem not moved by anything less of a solution to their demands.

Baguma further said that all teachers matter. Therefore payment shouldn’t be segregative. A teacher is a teacher and what they teach shouldn’t matter according to Baguma.

He also pointed out that the biggest percentage of learners being affected is the primary level.

Filbert also said that he would never advise anyone to go into industrial action. However, if it’s the only option for them to be heard, then it should be employed.
