In an interview with Chimpreports on Wednesday, Hajji Nsibirwa said several conmen masquerading as officials from the commission have conned several teachers and head teachers millions of shillings, promising promotions and to field them in better schools of their choice at a certain cost.

“Services offered by the Education Service Commission are free of charge. We facilitate our staff whenever they are heading for a special duty, stop being deceived that the money they ask from you is to facilitate them,” Nsibirwa warned.

He added that public jobs are free of charge and whoever asks for money should be reported to the concerned authorities to avoid tarnishing the name of the commission.

Nsibirwa further warned teachers against neglecting their duties and dodging of classes without clear reasons.

“We have also embarked on enforcing new reforms in Uganda’s education which include the 2012 teachers’ code of conduct which mandates stringent punishments to teachers who dodge classes without substantive reasons,” he warned.

Last week, Jinja road police arrested a suspected conman who has been posed as an Education commissioner before obtaining Shs2m from a one James Ssembatya, a student at Mbarara Senior Secondary School.

Sembatya promised the student a scholarship with Mulago Institute of Nursing and Midwives.
