Government Is Conniving With Schools – Hon. Charles Tebandeke

Bbaale constituency MP, Hon. Charles Tebandeke, has said the public should not expect government to do anything about the increased fees.

This is because the government is conniving with schools. Charles Tebandeke says government is quiet because most of the private schools are owned by people in the government. This means if they address this issue of fees increment, they too will be affected.

“Private schools have overly increased school fees. For a student to return to school, you must go back with the whole supermarket and hardware. When will a student use a dozen of pens? There is a syndicate. The government hasn’t failed to rectify Uganda’s education system, but they connive. The same people in the government are the same people that own those private schools,” he added.

Hon. John Musila agreed with this saying most of the big private schools are owned by people in the Ministry Of Education. Due to this, he says, such people are making the people hate the government.

The issue of increased school fees has been going on for long especially since lockdown was lifted. However, it keeps getting worse each term but the government is almost doing nothing about it.

On top of this, school requirements are extremely expensive too which has made reporting back to school hard for most parents and students.

Exorbitant school fees

Meanwhile, the government recently said it was working towards regulating school fees which had become a problem to so many people.

The government was sued for failure to regulate fees charged by schools and institutions of higher learning in the country.
