The Kibaale district education officer (DEO) has expressed concern over the increasing number of primary school teachers defiling their pupils, writes William Rwebembera.
Cleophus Mugenyi on Tuesday said more than 20 girls were defiled by their teachers every term.
“The 20 are only cases reported to the Police. Such cases were not common in the district in the past five years,” Mugenyi said, adding that there were more cases which went unreported.
He decried the delays in prosecuting the suspects, saying it hindered officials from taking action.
“We cannot take disciplinary measures like terminating the teachers’ services because they are not proved guilty. If prosecuted and found guilty, of course they would be jailed and also deleted from our list,” he said.
Last year, Mugenyi directed the Police to arrest two teachers and a headteacher alleged to have defiled their pupils in Bugangaizi county.
