Three Government-aided primary schools in Bukomero sub-county, Kiboga that were devastated by a storm three years ago, remain in a pile of rubble.


The institutions include Kyanamuyonjo, Kanzira Islamic and Kagogo primary schools. This has since left the teachers and pupils to utilise the shades and a few structures, which where left in the compounds, for studies.

The head teacher of Kanzira Islamic Primary School, Mohamed Luganda, said disruption worsens when rain appears, forcing teachers to pupils in the few available classrooms.

Kiboga LC5 chairperson Israel Yiga said because of limited funds the district get under the School Facilitation Grant (SFG), it could not raise the over sh155m needed to reconstruct the schools.

The state minister for fisheries, who is also the Kiboga Woman MP, Ruth Nankabirwa, recently launched a fundraising drive through “a donors conference” to raise money for the reconstruction. Presiding over as the chief guest at the occasion held at Kyanamuyonjo Primary School, Sam Kutesa, the Minister of Foreign Affairs, urged all people to contribute.

He contributed sh15m. Other items worth sh100m have been received according to Nankabirwa.
