The Office of the National Chairman (ONC) Kyambogo has intervened in the closure of Christ The King School located in Hoima district over poor structures and operating illegally.
ONC’s quick action followed a video that went viral on social media last week showing a grass-thatched school allegedly located in Hoima District with the majority of bazzukulu pointing fingers at HE Yoweri Museveni’s government blaming it for allowing such a school to operate.
Known for quick action and not just words, ONC under the leadership of workaholic Hajjat Hadijah Namyalo instructed its Bunyoro Subregion Coordinator to fact-find about the alleged school and indeed, swiftly the Coordinator Mr Tunura Brian took action.
“I engaged the RDC on Monday and a team was dispatched to follow up on the matter, I later went to Kyamukwenda Village to physically witness the said school. I wish to inform you that it was immediately closed by the RDC, Mr Rodger Mbabazi.”
According to Mr Tunura, the school was operating illegally and the District Education Officer (DEO) was not aware of the establishment claiming to be a school. ”The local people in the Kyamukwenda village were also shocked to learn that there existed a likelihood of a school in their village when a certain muzungu visited it,” says Tunura.
About 500 metres away from the controversial Christ the King establishment, there is Kijonjomi Primary School which is government-funded. Mr. Tunura advised the parents to be vigilant with such establishments in their villages as they might turn into rebel centres over time.
Before shutting this school, the individuals that claimed its management were advised to follow the law and register a proper school as per the guidelines of the Ministry of Education and Sport if they wished to contribute towards the socio-economic transformation of the people of Hoima through education
