A primary school teacher was on Tuesday arrested by the Bushenyi deputy Resident District Commissioner (RDC) after he was found drunk during teaching hours.

Hillary Mugumya 32, a grade III teacher at Nyarurambi primary school was picked from Kashenyi trading centre where he was found lying in muddy water. The deputy RDC Medius Rubanda arrested Mugumya after a tip off by concerned parents and residents in the trading centre.

Mugumya, who is teaches English and social studies to Primary Six and Seven pupils, was later driven to the office of the district education officer Norman Lukum. The education officials were shocked on seeing a bare footed Mugumya dressed in dirty clothes barely able to support himself to stand.

Talking uncontrollably, Mugumya amused the people when he responded saying that the reason why he fears going to school and teach is because he doesn’t have clothes.

In a November 8th 2011 letter retrieved from Mugumya pockets, he had appeared at the school to teach for only 22 days out of 45

days in a term.

The letter signed by the Nyarurambi Primary School head teacher Oscar Muhumuza accuses Mugumya of abusing the rights of children and his profession. Muhumuza says the staff at the school had tried to talk and counsel Mugumya but he had persistently failed to reform.

Responding to the incident, the DEO Norman Lukum called for counseling sessions in schools to help teachers. Lukum noted that many teachers have got socio-economic problems explaining that they think drinking alcohol is a solution to their

problems.
