Pupils of Bwibare primary school in Mitooma district are studying under tree shades three weeks after a heavy storm blew off the roof of their classrooms and the school administration block. Despite the fact that disaster preparedness ministry provided relief aid to members of the community affected by the storm, nothing has been done to reconstruct the school.

Gulu Ahimbisibwe, head teacher Bwibare primary school says that the reconstruction of the school was left in the hands of parents who have failed to raise the required funds. He says that as a result only 100 out of the 287 pupils are attending classes.

 

//Cue in…….the schools was blown off//

Cue out ……………… not turn out for class//

 

He explains that many pupils come from places where bridges were washed away by the storm. Alice Asiimwe Rushure, Mitooma Chief Administrative Officer says that the district is cash lacks funds to carry out rehabilitation works.

Sengooba says that he has made a comprehensive report about the damages and submitted it to the responsible ministries for intervention.
