Kilembe Senior Secondary School in Kasese municipality has been temporarily closed over a students protest.

Last week the students locked their classes and marched to the office of the Resident District Commissioner protesting teacher absenteeism.

They were advised to go back to school as leaders engaged with the school administration for a solution.

However, the learners refused to attend lessons which compelled security to advise the school administration to temporary close the school.

Nelson Tumushime, the police public relations officer Rwenzori East said the decision to send the students home was aimed at protecting the school property from destruction.

//Cue in: “As our mandate… 

Cue out: …demonstrations continue.”//

The Kasese municipal town clerk Isaiah Tumwesigye who was involved in the first meeting with the students last week said that the decision was taken after consultation with the security and the school administration.

He says they will hold meetings with the school administration to ensure learning resumes in the shortest time possible.

Jonus Muhindo a student at the school says that the teachers have abandoned their responsibilities and this it could affect the performance.

He is worried that this closure will further their academic schedule.

//Cue in: “Teachers are no…

Cue out: …as the candidates.”//

Efforts to get a comment from the school headteacher Josephine Muhindo remained futile as our reporter was informed that she is out of the district.
