Today, the minister in charge of Information And Technology (ICT), Hon. Judith Nabakoowa has openly spoken about the circulating misinformation that schools are opening up, having received information that some schools and institutions have been operating illegally. This violates the Covid 19 guidelines that were passed and called for all educational institutions to take hold until there’s the safety of all citizens’ health.
Institutions of Education in Uganda have been closed for more than eight months since the Covid 19 Pandemic outbreak in Uganda. Late in 2020, the finalists in these institutions were allowed to access the premises for their studies only if they were to follow the Standard Operating Procedures guidelines (SOPs) that were put in place by the Ministry of Health under the World Health Organisation on how to prevent the spread of the virus.
