were expecting the municipal authorities to release the money for
capitation grant and renovation among others to help them prepare for
their schools’ reopening but in vain.

expecting capitation grant for two years and Covid-19 money but none
of the expected funds has been disbursed to them yet the schools have
Muhindo, who also doubles as the chairperson for the head teachers of
primary schools in the municipality adds that they are currently
operating on borrowed money to run their schools.
Joviah Tumwikirize the head teacher Road Barrier Primary School,
who was on the reopening day attacked by a section of parents on
accusations of abandoning the school is arguing that it had turned busy
and dangerous to the learners since they didn’t have money to clean the institution.
Emmy Mwesige Kayiri, the Kasese Municipal Education Officer
acknowledges that there is delay by his department to disburse the funds to the
bank counts of various institutions of learning. ‘’There is delay to disburse the funds to bank account of various learning however, the issue will be sorted out,’’ Mwesige noted.
