The leading opposition party, however, said Museveni was not solely to blame for such a scandalous development, but the appointee himself, parents and Ugandans as a whole.
“Just recently we had a lot of problems at UNEB, to the extent that we nearly lost a whole academic year as students’ results got held by technical faults,” noted FDC spokes person Mr John Kikonyogo this morning at a press conference in Kampala.
“Our students joining A level lost over a month in the crisis, all because of mistakes of two or three people at UNEB and now we are told one of them is being reappointed.”
“But we cannot keep pushing the blame to president Museveni and the NRM government, when parents, and all nationals keep watching idly from the fence.”
Kikonyogo noted with concern that amidst all the chaos that ensued at UNEB over the last months students parents remained silent like nothing wrong happened.
“That was the material time we should have seen resignations there, but Ugandans remained silent, and took everything as normal.”
Mr Kikonyogo further blamed Bukenya and other senior leaders in government for accepting to be reappointed at such elderly stages of their lives.
He noted the party was concerned that people like Bukenya, and Chief Justice Benjamin Odoki, above 75 years of age, still felt best suited for such top government positions.
“And these have taught children in school to get the very jobs they have refused to surrender,” he added.
