Parents in Mbarara district have been urged not to leave the responsibility of welfare at their children’s schools solely to government.

Ahimbisibwe noted with concern that most parents have maintained a misconception that all schools are a responsibility of President Yoweri Museveni.

“Many schools when you visit them are in a horrible condition. Staffs don’t have accommodation and the sanitation is deplorable,” he noted.

“At Kamatarizi and Rwenjeru primary schools, teachers I was told reside in their staff room. That is dangerous, especially for the young female pupils. At Nyamwirima primary school, classes are conducted under the trees.”

The DEO noted that it was important for parents to mobilize themselves and get some of such bottlenecks out of the way, rather than having to wait for everything to be resolved by government.

He also noted with concern that the number of school dropouts were going up in the district.

About 2200 females and 1908males he said dropped out from primary schools this year alone.

According to a joint statement, the two parties agreed that “peace, stability and security of the country are a common good that must be jealously guarded by all to sustain democracy and development.”

At the end of the meeting which took place at the Office of The Prime Minister in Kampala, the two parties appreciated the initiative of the meeting, and agreed to continue holding them on a regular basis.

This development comes high on the heels of escalated violent clashes between police and opposition.

Police maintain all public assemblies must be regulated to avoid chaos and unlawfulness but opposition believe this is meant to curtail their mobilisation work ahead of the 2016 elections.

During the meeting, members asked the Attorney General to work with his counterpart in the Opposition and other stakeholders to come to a common understanding and interpretation of the Public Order Management Act (POMA) and advise the Police to implement it accordingly.

The two warring parties noted that “it is important for civility, mutual respect and adherence to rule of law be the hallmark of interactions of Police, leaders and the general public.”

They proposed that an enabling law to “guide the recruitment, training and operations of Community Policing” be put in place and that the “ongoing training of Crime Preventers need to be reviewed.”

It was also decided that all militia groups be disbanded.

“We would like assure all Ugandans that the exercise will be conducted peacefully, transparently and successfully throughout the country,” noted the NRM EC Chairman, Dr. TangaOdoi on Saturday.

Dr. Tanga told journalists at the party secretariat in Kampala that the commission is in its final stages of preparations.

“The registers are being checked, verified and ballot papers are packed; I want to assure the public that we have ballot papers for all constituencies in the different categories to be voted upon on Monday.”

“All Polling materials will be secured by the Uganda Police Force from the time they are produced right through voting. Polling materials will be delivered to police stations for onward delivery to polling centers on Monday morning ahead of voting time.”

Tanga revealed that in a bid to ensure effective monitoring of the entire process, supervision teams have been created and allocated different districts and sub regions.

“This time round, we are not leaving anything to chance, we have created teams and new faces will be coming to districts to monitor the performance of our officials as a counter measure for any aspect of corruption and rigging in the coming election.”

“Any report given which has evidence of malpractice, that election will not be allowed to pass through; I ask district officials to cooperate with the officials we shall send.”

He added that declaration forms which have been a problem will not be this time, since every candidate’s agent must be given a declaration form.

“These forms are not generic; the ones in Mayuge cannot be used to declare someone in Tororo since they have serial numbers for particular districts.”

Tanga called upon registrars to desist from bribery from any candidate warning that anybody found shall be sent to police cells.
