Mega UPE School Suffers a Toilet Crisis

Over 800 students in public of Sanga, Wakiso district are likely to catch unhygienic -related disease due to lack of toilets, more shockingly even the teachers  have nowhere to go to  answer  the call of nature when in need.

Sarah Nakazibwe the head of the school shocked the leaders when she said that the school has no toilets and the inadequate toilet facilities are overloaded, this she said during the occasion organized at school o launch the physical exercise campaign with a purpose of ensuring body fitness among students.

Besides the toilet problem, Nakaziwe said that the there is a problem of inadequate class rooms, she therefore urged the authorities to bail them out before the year ends.

 

The leaders together with the Nansana municipality education officer where the Gombe division is and where the school is found, urged parents not to despise the public or UPE school, although they have inadequate facilities, they are far better than other schools. They also added that parents should not neglect the UPE Schools; therefore they should support them through availing school requirements for their children and also visit them regularly.

The universal primary education system was launched by the government of Uganda 20 years ago, it has benefited mostly the law income earning parents with underprivileged children, though many politicians have criticized the system saying that it has done a disservice to the population.
