SIR— I would like to make the following recommendations to this country. In so doing, I invite the Government, schools, individual parents and universities to participate.

SIR— I would like to make the following recommendations to this country. In so doing, I invite the Government, schools, individual parents and universities to participate.
Let the top 100 PLE students in Uganda study free of charge in schools of their choice, from Senior One to Senior Four. Then let the top 20 O-level students also study free of charge in A-level schools of their choice. Finally, let universities also offer free education for the top 10 A-level students.
I have no doubt that the relevant authorities can waive off the fees for such students.
Let the country show gratitude to those young boys and girls who excel in their studies. Then my able countrymen and women will contribute, say one to five thousand shilling each, for the students personal expenses.
