The Bundibugyo Deputy Resident District Commissioner–RDC, Umaru Muhanguzi has closed boarding section of six private primary schools and one secondary school in Bundibugyo town council citing lack of the necessary requirements.  

The affected include Patmos Island primary school, Ali memorial Islamic primary school, Crane Preparatory primary school, Friend’s primary school, Dynamic Islamic primary school, Green Hill primary school and Iqra Islamic secondary school.  

According to Muhanguzi, the schools don’t have licenses that allow them to operate boarding sections. He explains that during his visit to the school, he discovered that some of them don’t have sufficient space in dormitories while others operate in dilapidated structures with poor sanitary conditions.

“Other schools have dormitories made of timbers and puts the lives of pupils at risk in case of fire outbreak,” Muhanguzi said.

Magezi explained that for a school to operate a boarding section, it must be licensed by the district education office have permanent buildings for dormitories with proper ventilation system and emergency exits among other requirements.   

He says although the number of pupils and students that were in the boarding sections couldn’t be readily established, the closure takes immediate effect.  

Magezi advises the school administrators to meet the necessary requirements and apply licenses to run boarding sections.   

Fred Salube, the deputy head teacher Iqra Islamic secondary school, decried the closure of the boarding section at his school, saying that they were only trying to create jobs for people in the area as they work on the process of acquiring licenses and erect standard dormitories.
