The money that the Education Ministry directed schools to use for renovation works is severely inadequate.
Due to the prolonged closure of learning institutions triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, schools did not utilize the Shillings 107billion disbursed by the government under the capitation grant.
As a result, the Education Ministry directed schools to utilize a total of Shillings 62 billion for renovation ahead of the reopening on January 10th, 2022.
Juliet Namuddu, the Director of Education and Social Services under Kampala Capital City Authority -KCCA says that the money allocated for the renovation works is insufficient.
She says that this means the schools can only use it for simple tasks like slashing the compound, painting and repairing broken desks and chairs.
