The president has not come out to clarify on anything about this and neither has the ministry of education.
There has been a school calendar making rounds on social media apparently set by the ministry of education. However, yesterday through their different social media platforms, the ministry of education put a disclaimer on all those documents. Even in doing that, they did not come out to set the record straight for the fate of schools very soon.
Even the Uganda National Examination Board came out during the week to say they haven’t got any formal letter about the opening of schools. So was it just a rumor or someone is fooling the other?
It’s just a week away from the anticipated day of reopening of schools but the officials haven’t come out to actually say a word. Should we say they are still consulting?
In his last address on Covid-19, president Museveni had said that by September they would have decided the fate of schools. We are already mid way through the month and there is no sign of him speaking very soon.
Of Course all we have to do is wait but it would be better to communicate something.
Parents should be informed earlier so that they prepare financially and students to prepare psychologically. Depending on how this week will go, the opening of institutions may just be a rumor.
