“Teachers from Buvuma, Moroto and Kumi have never received a single coin from government since April this year,” stressed Tweheyo.

He said many teachers find problems in accessing and providing basic needs to their families because of lack of money.

“Over Ush600 billion is spent fraudulently by government every year but the teachers are starving,” he lamented.

Mr Tweheyo also attributed the poor performance of children to the problems faced by teachers.

“The poor situation has had a big impact on the performance of children since many teachers decide not to teach because of lack of facilitation.”

He also condemned government for failing to increase on the number of teachers and yet there many children to teach in schools.

The number of children has increased from 2.5 million to 8 million and yet there are few teachers. 120,000 teachers are needed to meet this gap,” stressed Tweheyo.

The UNATU’s SG insisted that government should engage teachers on a round table, and get all matters solved.

“Government is simply trying to suppress the teachers but we shall not accept it because it’s unfair.”
