Hon. Sewungu who happens to sit on the Parliamentary Education Committed blasted the minister, saying the claims were nothing but “naked lies” only aimed at blackmailing Ugandans and shielding the failed education system in the country.

Sewungu said comparing the English spoken by the children in Kampala with those in rural areas shows the latter “are still far behind standard.”

“Children in the villages who even happen to be in candidate classes cannot solve a simple mathematical calculation and arithmetic,” Sewungu lamented.

“It is so ashaming for President Museveni during the Heroes’ Day to ask parents to pack cold food for their children which leads to malnutrition. The children cannot perform well.”

The report that emphasizes equity and accessibility. It shows that 15 percent of children have never attended school and 2.2million children below the age of 5 suffer from stunting resulting from malnutrition. 3.7 percent of Children below the age of 5 live in poverty while 1.6 percent live in extreme poverty.
