A survey discovered that thousands of schools around the country are stuck with stockpiles of expired chemicals

The World Bank has been blamed for failing to monitor the sh540bn project loan it granted the Government of Uganda, to improve teaching of sciences in secondary schools.

An independent internal audit of the World Bank rates the Government and World Bank’s performance on this project, as, “moderately unsatisfactory.”

This was the same opinion expressed by the Government on its own internal assessment of this project.

New Vision survey weeks ago, discovered that thousands of schools around the country are stuck with stockpiles of expired chemicals, delivered by the education ministry a couple of years ago.

In certain instances, schools received chemicals which had not been labelled.
