Government has halted the registration of teachers, pending the completion of the migration of the Ministry of Education and Sports to new premises.
It is understood the educaiton ministry is set to relocate from Uganda Development House to Legacy towers, where they would be renting.
The ministry vacated Development House to give way for Parliament to redevelop the structures into offices for MPs.
“Ministry Of Education and Sports would like to inform the public that Teacher registration which was taking place at both Embassy and Development house has been temporarily halted,” Patrick Muinda, the Commissioner for Communication said in a statement that the ministry issued on Wednesday.
“The temporary halt is due to the fact that all Departments currently housed at Development house are shifting to Legacy Towers, Plot 5, Kyadondo Road, Nakasero, Kampala Uganda,” he added.
Parliament owns Development House and the ministry of education has occupied the building for 10 years.
Muinda said that the registration of teachers would take place within two weeks - from January 13 to 27.
The registration is compulsory for teachers to execute their duties in both private and government schools.
