    Education Minister Janet Kataha Museveni during the release of UCE results

    The Uganda National Examination Board (UNEB) on Friday released the 2020 Uganda Certificate Of Education (UCE) results showing much better performance of Senior four students who sat for the exams last year despite of the covid season at an event presided over by the First Lady who also doubles as the Education minister Janet Kataha Museveni.

    A total of 333,889 candidates registered for the 2020 UCE examinations from 3,935 centres. According to UNEB, 49.8 percent of the candidates were male and 50.1 percent female.

    Prof. Mary Okwakol, by the director education standards, Dr. Kedrace Turyagyenda, candidature in previous examinations had been increasing between two to three per cent annually.

    39,968 candidates passed in division one, 109,750 in division two, 191,178 in division three and 311,233 in division four. UNEB results show that 329,648 candidates were ungraded and as thus, cannot advance for A-level education. These candidates can either repeat S4 or join technical & vocational training institutions for skill-based opportunities.

    According to the board, there was an overall improvement in performance in the large entry subjects like English, CRE, IRE, and History save for Geography, Chemistry and Biology.

    Here is a list of the top 250 Schools according to their performance in the UCE exams.

    KEEP YOUR MONEY; We Shall Not Accept Homosexuality, Lesbianism And Abortion – First Lady Slams European Funders Over LGBT…

    Published

    on

    Minister Kataha Museveni (L) and deputy Speaker Thomas Tayebwa (R)

    First Lady and Minister of Education and Sports, Janet Kataha Museveni has slammed European funders over LGBT and asked them to keep their money if it is one of the conditions to fund Uganda.

    It should be remembered that during the recent 61st session of the African, Caribbean and Pacific States Parliamentary Assembly and 42nd Session of the ACP-European Union Joint Parliamentary Assembly (ACP-EU JPA) in Maputo, Mozambique on 31st October 2022, Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Thomas Tayebwa, who represented Uganda warned delegates that there is need for the Contonou Agreement to broadly define human rights in relation to homosexuality.

    Tayebwa told members who attended that the agreement contained clauses promoting homosexuality and abortion, a practice he said Uganda will vehemently oppose.

    “We have discovered that with the Post Cotonou agreement, there are hidden clauses concerning human rights. Clauses to do with sexuality, promotion of LGBT/homosexuality and clauses to do with abortion,” he said.

    He insisted, “We are a society that is not ready for homosexuality and we are a society that is not ready for abortion. As Africa, we believe that the institution of the family is at the core of whatever we are doing.”

    Appearing at Kololo Ceremonial Grounds today, as the chief guest at the National Conference on Ethics and Morality, Hon. Janet Museveni noted that they must stand up and let the world know who their God is, what determines their perspectives and who they follow.

    She revealed, “Why do we say we will not allow homosexuality and lesbianism in our society, we follow a living God who gives us the moral perspectives to live by.

    “It does not matter, those who threaten us that they won’t give us money can keep their money, God will provide for us.”

    At the same conference today, Tayebwa recalled the contentious discussion on LGBT at the recent Joint Parliamentary Assembly of African, Caribbean and Pacific states and European Union (ACP-EU) in Maputo.

    He disclosed that when he went to Maputo, he was shocked to find all kinds of people from everywhere, private jets had landed, the issue was to lobby ACP-EU to pass a resolution that to access the next European funding to African, Caribbean and Pacific states, they must acknowledge LGBT.

    Tayebwa propounded, “They were saying we must acknowledge LGBT and also amend our laws to allow it, they were also saying we must provide money for abortion in the budget, that if you don’t have money we shall provide it to you. That’s when some of us said no.

    “What is unfortunate is that some people look at our stand on LGBT as abnormal, a certain European MP said to me ‘we can see you are spreading hatred’. Then we have the problem of fear, some people warned me that I could be denied Visa to certain countries,” Tayebwa said.

    University Professor Who Sexually Harassed Student Handed Over To CID..

    Published

    on

    Dr. Nafiu Lukman Abiodun

    Kabale University Professor, Dr. Nafiu Lukman Abiodun, the Head of Department of Economics and Statistics at the Faculty of Economics and Management Sciences has been cited for sexual harassment of female student.

    Addressing press on Monday, 21st November, Police mouthpiece, Fred Enanga revealed that the Criminal Investigative Department (CID) Headquarters, has instituted inquiries into the alleged acts of sexual harassment, failure to follow examination regulations and professional negligence, by Dr. Nafiu.

    Enanga’s concern follows the recent incident of physical assault and harassment of a female Makerere University student by her lecturer, identified as Dr. Benard Wandera, of the College of Humanities and Social sciences, which occurred on the 18, November, 2022, during his lecture in the Frank-Kalimuzo Central Teaching Facility.

    “As police, we take all reports of harassment seriously and we will ensure that the matter, which generated public debate after the video footage went viral is thoroughly investigated and justice accorded to the victim,” he said.

    The police mouthpiece added that a copy of the footage has been retrieved for further analysis and the victim has also been identified and arrangements are in place for the victim to record her statement.

    He adduced, “We are happy that the University took administrative action, through the immediate suspension of the lecturer and the composition of an investigation committee alleged acts of assault, harassment and willful professional misconduct by the lecturer. The priority of the university or college should remain the protection of both its students and employee community.

    “We also want to use this opportunity to call upon any university or college student, who has experienced any forms of abusive behavior, physical misconduct, sexual misconduct or any other form of inappropriate behavior, by a lecturer, university or college staff or fellow student, that the Directorate of CID, through its various departments of SGBV, General Crimes, provide a range of support for victimized students to get justice.

    “We strongly believe tough sanctions against abusive lecturers, will provide a campus environment that is full of respect, human dignity and an environment where everyone, can thrive in their academic, professional and personal pursuits. In addition, it will prohibit abusive Lecturers, Professors and other staff from finding new jobs in other Universities.”

    Ministry Of Education Orders Early Closure Of Schools To Curb Ebola…

    Published

    Education minister Janet Museveni

    Ministry of Education and Sports has ordered early closure of schools to curb ebola.

    Speaking to press on Tuesday, Ministry of Education noted that cabinet considered and approved a proposal from Ministry of Health to reduce Third term by two weeks so as to decongest schools that are likely to increase vulnerability of children to EVD infections.

    “Closing schools earlier will reduce areas of concentration where children are in daily close contact with fellow children, teachers and other staff who could potentially spread the virus,” State Minister for Primary Education, Dr. Moricu Kaducu said.

    She added, “Pre-Primary, Primary and Secondary schools will close for Third Term holidays on Friday 25th November 2022.

    “The District /City/Municipal Education officers and head teachers should take note and act accordingly.

    “The schools will be required to conduct final/promotional exams a little earlier effective next week. Schools should communicate and prepare learners mentally and physically to adjust to this change in the school calendar.

    “Upon completion, children will be required to immediately return safely to their homes in a staggering manner to avoid congestion and congregating. The school administration will also be required to decontaminate all school facilities and make them safe for children’s return next year 2023.

    “The Ministry of Education and Sports together with Ministry of Works and Transport will issue guidelines on measures to follow during transportation of learners in order to avoid congestion at bus and taxi parks.”

    Dr.Moricu also revealed that on 26th October 2022, Ministry of Health confirmed that there were six cases in school-aged children who attended classes at three different schools in Rubaga Division of Kampala.

    “One of the children died from the disease and 170 contacts were identified from these cases. Among children, a total of 23 cases had been confirmed, of which; 8 had died while 5 had fully recovered and 16 were under isolation by 4th November, 2022.”

    It should be remembered that the Ministry of Health declared an outbreak of Ebola Virus Disease (EVD) on 20 September 2022 after a case was confirmed in Mubende Regional Referral Hospital.
