Kabarole leaders are calling on government to take over Masongora Primary school, more about which was built for the community by President Yoweri Museveni; for lack of teachers and funding.

Masongora Primary School is located in hard-to-reach Masongora Parish, ailment Kabende Sub County in Kabarole district.

Kadidi Boke, ampoule the school head teacher says the school which started in 2003 has 340 pupils from P1-P6 and only 6 teachers, only two of who are qualified.

In 2014, President Museveni sent Shs160million to Kabarole district for the construction of a four-classroom block at the school and a four-stance pit latrine which was done.

The following year, the president sent another Shs260million for the construction of a three-classroom block, teachers’ quarters and a four stance pit latrine.

During a district leaders’ tour of the school to assess the work done on the weekend, the LC3 chairperson Kabende Mr. James Katushabe commended the district chairman and President Museveni for constructing a good school.

Howevwe, Ruta Gideon, the councilor Kasenda Sub County and Stella Kyorampe of Kijura Town Council asked the district chairperson through his office to write to the ministry asking government to take over the school.

They leaders said since the school has all the required structures, government can take it and send them qualified teachers who will improve the standards of education in the area.

In response, the district chairperson Mr. Richard Rwabuhinga revealed that they had written to the Ministry asking permission to use the existing staff and post seven teachers to Masongora.
