Teachers Leaving Profession Due To Delayed Government Salaries

Secondary schools still face a big challenge in running day-to-day activities due to the delayed release of salaries by the government.

This issue was noticed during the official release of the Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education (UACE) for Rukiga district. The release happened on 13th March 2023 at the Rukiko hall.

Rukiga District LC V Chairperson Hon. Robert Kakwerere spoke as the guest of honor at the ceremony. He said the government faces lack of enough funds to accommodate all things. Even worse, he said they are likely to see a budget cut in this coming financial year.

Kakwerere revealed that they know some schools are losing their teachers who are seeking greener pastures. This has mainly been attributed to the government’s delayed payment of their salaries.

Furthermore, he requested school head teachers to remain calm as the wage bill issue is being handled at national level.

“The government is faced with a lack of enough funds to accommodate all things. As a district, we will likely see a budget cut in this coming 2023/2024 financial year,” Kakwereere said.

District stakeholders have ensured teamwork and increased supervision in schools, achieving better performance.

Gideon Tumwesigyire, the district Chief Administrative officer (CAO) also advised school heads to watch their students cautiously. He said this in relation to bullying as it already exists in some schools.

Rukiga district has 9 UACE centres, both government aided and private secondary schools combined.

Out of the 232 students who registered for UACE, 109 scored three principle passes, 79 got two PP, 42 got 1 PP and only one Absentee.
