Zadock Tumuhimbise the Kabale Uganda National Teachers Union [UNATU] Chairperson has finally been released having spent a couple of days behind the bars.

His release was ordered by Minister of State for Planning Hon David Bahati, for sale http://cystiphane-biorga.com/wp-content/plugins/ubermenu/standard/stylegenerator/lessc.inc.php who rushed to the district at the height of confrontation between teachers and district leaders led by RDC Darius Nandinda, viagra http://clearintotheclassroom.com/wp-includes/nav-menu-template.php who ordered his arrest.

Mr Tumuhimbise was accused of shutting down Nyaikunama Primary School where he is the headteacher, http://clothesthatwork.org/wp-content/plugins/the-events-calendar/src/tribe/asset/ajax_list.php amidst a nationwide teachers strike over salaries.

Minister Bahati, flanked by Kabale district Chairman Patrick Keihwa, and Mayor Kabale Municipality Dr Pius Ruhemurana met with some of the UNATU members and headteachers, in the office of the DPC at Kabale Central Police.

After about three hours of deliberation, as more than 100 other teachers piled outside the police station, it was agreed that Tumuhimbise is unconditionally released; sparking wild jubilations.

Bahati said that the actions of RDC Nandinda [who shunned the meeting] were regrettable as the position of government is that they keep engaging the UNATU leadership to go back to the schools so that the schools don’t lose a lot of time.

He also said that government would not intimidate anybody but continue appealing to the teachers, and hope that they would accept to pick up their tools and go back to class.

Bahati who is also the Ndorwa west MP added that due to the uniqueness of this year as there is an impending election, increment of teachers’ salaries in public schools would put government in a difficult financing position.

He reechoed government’s commitment to honor its promise of a 10% teachers pay raise in the next 2016/17 financial year.

According to the Chief Executive Officer Miss Uganda, Brenda Nanyonjo, just like in the 2014 pageant, this one too will run under an agriculture and entrepreneurship theme with major focus on the youth.

“We want to continue with the focus on agriculture because we realize the project could not be completed within a year” Brenda said.

She added that the search is on for land to invest in and use it as a demonstration farm for best agricultural practices while engaging the beauty queens.

Nanyonjo hinted on the relevance of investing in Agriculture, citing the achievements registered by Miss Flavia Ibyara, last years’s Miss Eastern Uganda who started up a rabbit rearing and meat processing project, as well as Judith Moru 2013/2014 Miss North’s blossoming Poultry farm.

Timothy Luzinda, the Mirinda Brand Manager noted that the company would raise the event sponsorship to Shs 40 million to make it more colorful and meaningful
