Mutumba Secondary school commissioned
Challenges of walking long distance in search for a school have been relieved off children of Mutumba sub county following the commissioning of Mutumba Seed secondary school.
The school that was constructed at sh2.5b was commissioned by the Minister for Education Hon. Janet Kataha Museveni.
In her message, delivered by the State Minister for Agriculture Hon. Fred Bwino Kyakulaga, Hon Museveni said the construction of secondary schools in sub counties is in line with government's policy of making education accessible.
"Over the years, the government has taken bold steps towards the right directions like reviving policies to promote diversity, skills and provision of a comprehensive education," she said adding that this is all aimed at enhancing competitiveness of children to survive within the ever changing global environment.
The Member of Parliament for Namayingo South, Hon. Micheal Wanyama Odwor commended government for the support.
The LC5 vice chairperson Kauta Abdullah Twaha said the facility is a relief to children who have been walking about 30km to access education in the neighbouring sub counties
The Resident District Commissioner Sulaiman Ogajjo Barasa urged parents to support their children to enable them complete the whole cycle of education.
The Principal Assistant Secretary Mr. Ouma John Patrick who represented the Chief Administrative Officer Ms. Edith Namayega cited a challenge of lack of enough teachers.
"The secondary schools staffing position is bad with only 149 teachers for 4671 students," he said.
He thanked the former area Member of Parliament Hon. Stephen Dede Mayende who constructed the first permanent structure in the school using the constituency development fund.
