Benson Katyango Boeing, a Senior Education Officer of Kotido district says girls are at the risk of dropping out of school once their parents don’t give them another chance to study and complete their education because despite early pregnancies.
Katungi’s arrest follows an operation in which police recovered a motorcycle whose owner Joseph Ssebandeke, had been attacked by iron bar hitmen. Ssebandeke is in critical condition at Masaka Regional Referral Hospital.
According to Katikkiro Charles Peter Mayiga, this partnership will use the sounding of the Gwanga Mujje drum in the villages translated as “all of you come” a drum that was sounded in the olden days in times of trouble to rally the people to a common cause for example fighting invaders. To him, Covid-19 is a lion that has attacked and people need to come together to fight it hence the sounding of this drum.
