Members of Parliament have tasked Government to reprimand schools that blocked candidates from sitting this year’s Uganda Advanced Certificate of Education and Uganda Certificate of Education.

Fifteen senior six students of Iganga Top Care Secondary School in Iganga municipality were barred from sitting for their Uganda UACE examinations on Monday over unpaid fees balances.

This was against Government directive that students with fees balance are allowed to sit for their final exams, and their results be withheld until they pay. 

Gulu Municipality MP Lyandro Komakech while raising a matter of national importance in Parliament questioned why the students were barred. Lyandro says Government should take a strong stand against the schools.

The Speaker of Parliament Rebecca Kadaga asked Government to explain why the students had been blocked from sitting for exams.

Charles Bakabulindi, the State Minister for Sports says although it is a requirement for a student to clear fees, he is going to find out from Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) on why the students were blocked and why it is not implementing the directive to allow the students sit.
