Parliament’s Budget Committee has declined to approve a 336.8 Billion Shillings supplementary budget request by government to purchase 9 million radio sets for Ugandan homes to facilitate the long distance learning program during the Covid-19 lockdown.
Each student was expected to line up in queue with his plate to get food. One of the students told URN on condition of anonymity that the Outgoing Guild Sports Minister, Jeremiah Ogwok jumped the line to the service Centre without a plate and demanded for food.
According to Muruli-Mukasa, the government has agreed to work on all the issues raised by MUBS academic staff, adding that they are already working on a supplementary budget of Shillings 4926,869,832 billion to cater for the salaries of the 843 staff.
While the health ministry says it plans to carry out investigations, officials from the ministry of education told URN that they are unaware of any learners being infected with COVID-19 from a school setting.
