Ugandan students continue their studies on October 15. The Ugandan government has announced that it will allow students to return to school to continue their studies while the nation continues to deal with the COVID-19 epidemic.
In his State of the Nation Address on Sunday, September 20, President Yoweri Museveni said all academic institutions would be officially opened from Thursday, October 15, and enroll last year students.
Students who will be admitted to school include those of P-7, S-4 (O level) and S-6 (A level) and final year students at technical institutions and universities.
Museveni said the move for final year students to return to school was due to their ease of compliance with kindergarten rules compared to kindergarten.
“We think it’s safe because last year’s students in every institution are fewer than those who are re-enrolled in these seats. Because of the congestion when leaving primary school, secondary, technical institutions and universities respectively. If those last year 2020 do not move, what will happen in 2021? Are we capable of having two groups in 2021? The answer is obvious, no, ”said Museveni.
Museveni’s announcement comes six months after he ordered all academic institutions to be closed in the country and enacted strict laws to end the spread of the virus.
