BUYENDE: Speaker of PArliament Rt. Hon. Anita Among has said citizens must hold their leaders accountable and ensure that they support legislative endeavours that seek to preserve and protect Uganda’s cultural norms.
Speaking at the handover of solar systems to 49 government aided schools in Budiope East Constituency at Naloose Church of Uganda Primary School, Among tasked locals to ensure that leaders protect them from acts of immorality such as homosexuality that is currently taking a toll on young people.
“As you may already be aware, various vices are cropping up in our society, especially in schools that has partly contributed to the high rate of school dropout, she said.
Among also called on leaders and stakeholders to support government’s efforts that seek to improve the quality and affordability of education.
During the handover of the solar systems, Among also pledged to construct a girls’ dormitory at Naloose Church of Uganda Primary School in bid to promote girl child education.
‘’Learners in rural areas face very many hardships at school which make it hard for them to favourably compete with their colleagues in urban schools. I am making this donation in support of government’s efforts that seek to improve access to education and their learning experience,” she said.
The area Member of Parliament, Hon. Moses Magogo commended the Speaker for the gesture urging leaders to optimally utilize the resources that were donated to bolster access to education in the region.
The event was attended by Bukhooli Central MP, Hon. Solomon Silwanyi, Kagulu South MP, Hon. Milton Muwuma and Hon. Baroda Kayaga of Kamuli Municipality, among other MPs and district leaders.
