While addressing press in Mbarara, Mr Tweheyo advised the teachers especially in rural areas to always find time off their school schedule to set up small gardens where they can harvest food.

“If you don’t have food it means that when hunger strikes, all your earnings will go to buying food which may lead to a crisis,” he said.

Tweheyo revealed at the press conference that in the ending year, UNATU lost up to 600 members, many of who died of natural deaths while others perished in accidents among other causes.
