Teachers Defy Ministry Order

Dr. Y. K. Nsubuga last night sent a missive to all head teachers, physician saying the national teachers’ day is not a public holiday.

“The PS hereby informs all the chief administrative officers, district education officers, head teachers, teachers and the general public that tomorrow, 5th October 2011 (today), though a WORLD TEACHERS DAY, “IT IS NOT A PUBLIC HOLIDAY”.

He added: “All head teachers, teachers and students are expected to be at their duty stations without fail and schools should therefore operate normally.”

Amusingly, our reporters say most teachers did not go for classes.

In Kampala celebrations are on, led by UNATU leader Theopista. She says unless government increases their salaries as earlier agreed, their sit-down strike will resume.
