President Yoweri Museveni officially commissioned a multi- purpose school building and planted a tree of remembrance at the Kirigwajjo Secondary School in Karuguuza, Kibaale district in Bunyoro Sub-Region.
During his visit to the school over the weekend, the President also awarded certificates of recognition to individuals who had contributed heavily to the success of the school for the last 38 years.
He used the same occasion to lambast some District Education Officers for being lazy resulting in their failure to supervise schools in their areas of work in the country.
He noted that poor performance by a number of Universal Primary and Secondary Education-run schools largely stems on the laziness of DEOs to fully supervise schools.
You find people complaining because of the laziness of public servants, he said.
Mr. Museveni thanked the people of the area for having started Kirigwajjo Secondary School and for turning it into a good standard institution of learning.
He assured the headmaster that in the upcoming national budget, the school will get a bus and a modern library.
He also pledged to work on another neighbouring educational institution – Kasambya School adding that the NRM Governments plan is to ensure a secondary school per Sub-County throughout the country.
He, at this juncture, commended the headmaster for of Kirigwajjo Secondary School for the good job in that school.
He reiterated the NRM governments stand against sectarianism based on religion, tribe or gender and encouraged religious leaders to stop torturing people basing on unprincipled religious conflicts.
The President thanked the people of the area for inviting him to celebrate the 38 years that the school had existed and also for having voted for him in the February 18th 2016 Presidential Elections.
