The petition comes off the heels of the parliament’s decision to halt the online classes that were set up as an alternative to the continued closure of learning institutions across the country. The legislators cited the fact that some students would be left out due to lack of the necessary infrastructure such as computers, smart phones, and data.

The students have however dismissed claims that some colleagues have been left out and have reported that attendance had been at 95% by the time classes were halted.

They also clarified that LDC hasn’t asked for facilitation for the classes.

President Yoweri Museveni recently dampened the enthusiasm of learners during his latest address on the fight against coronavirus by keeping schools closed for now in a bid to control the spread of the coronavirus.
