BUNDIBUGYO - While part of the country is experiencing heavy traffic jam, in another part, it is a miracle to have a glimpse on a vehicle.

This was the case in Bundibugyo, where a teacher had to stop a lesson halfway to ensure that pupils see what they had always been been taught.

Rogers Muhindo of Karambi Primary School in Burondo sub-county Bundibugyo district, adjourned a lesson to let the pupils enjoy the view of what was regarded a 'fleet'.

Muhindo said in a single year, one vehicle goes past the school, but since five cars had come at once at the school, it was a chance to pertake of.

The vehicles belong to the district officials who had gone to monitor and commision classrooms constructed by World Vision, a non-governmental organisation.

The good news, however, is that the road leading to the school was graded in February to allow movement of the dignitaries for the commissioning of the classrooms.

Hopefully, more vehicles will reach the school more often than before.
