Esau Willy Nshabirwe, Sheema District Education Officer said, “After a meeting with the stakeholders and school heads, we decided that all secondary schools be temporarily closed to stop students from destroying property.”


It should be noted that of the 42 secondary schools in the district, 15 of them were at the beginning of this term closed down after students turned unruly.


“We have intelligence reports that those we thought were okay are also planning to strike which has prompted us to save the situation and close them,” added Esau.


Esau told the press that the stakeholders consulted with the Ministry of Education and Sports which permitted them to close the schools and open for third term after students have reformed.


“We could not sit and see students destroy the schools’ property which have cost the government and parents’ time and money to solicit them,” he said.


A wave of school strikes have in the past week hit sheema district with the latest being Kitagata secondary school after students demonstrated last Thursday torching the school library.
