Jasper Abura, the Lira City Education Officer, says that the inspection report shows that most schools are keeping the learning materials instead of distributing it to their learners. He attributes this to the fact that the learning materials were delivered at the time when some of the schools were already closed.
The said group was picked from one house in Kyengera Town Council and held at Nkonkonjeru Police Post at the end of March 2020. Subsequently, they were arraigned before the Nsangi Magistrates court, charged with an act that is likely to spread the infectious disease and remanded to Kitalya government Prison.
The group who are calling themselves “vulnerable” says government has since sidelined them to benefit from the recently distributed food relief from the Office of the Prime Minister. They say life has never been easy for them since the lock down.
