The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Rebecca Kadaga, on Saturday 18th June 2016 launched the distribution of PLE Revision books for schools in Luuka District.
This was at the Luuka Primary School where various schools had gathered for the occasion.
“Busoga has been failing academically over the years. I want to see excellence, and I have decided to have a special programme for Busoga. I will distribute books to all candidates in Primary Seven,” Kadaga said.
The Members of Parliament from the Busoga region present at the launch were very optimistic of the initiative by the Speaker to distribute past papers to all students in Busoga region.
“We are very grateful for this gesture to improve education in Busoga. The performance has been terrible and I have no doubt that the education level will improve in our region,” Hon. Stephen Kisa, the area MP, said.
Honourable Kisa urged teachers and parents to be a part of the success story by availing themselves at all times, and ensuring that students, especially the girl-child attend classes.
The programme, which will cover the whole of Busoga region, has so far seen books distributed to Kamuli, Buyende, Bugiri and Luuka districts.
In a related development, the Speaker of Parliament, who was also the Guest of Honour, officially opened Musana Health Centre at Busei in Iganda Town.
