School resumption will be okayed by Ministry of Health – State Minister Muyingo
Information reaching our desk indicates that the ministry of Education is waiting for a green light from the Ministry of Health before learning institutions can be opened.
The State Minister for Higher Education, John Chrysostom Muyingo said that they are ready to resume work as long the Minister of Health Dr. Ruth Aceng and her team permits them to do so.
The minister said that the despite the mounting pressure from school managements and parents, they can’t open if they are not sure of the safety of their children in the schools.
He made these remarks during his visit to Rwenzori region to assess the damages caused by flood on schools which ravaged Kasese last month.
The minister also encouraged students to keep engaged with their colleagues and teachers through E-learning which was recently adopted by government.
