Parents of Bukise primary school in Bukise Sub County in Sironko district destroyed the school garden on Monday to protest the transfer of the Head teacher.  

The parents stormed the school garden and cut down crops when they received news of the transfer of the school head teacher, Emma Wangwe. 

Moses Gamasho, the Chairperson of the School Management Committee, says parents rampaged when they heard that Wangwe had been replaced by Beatrice Nandutu as head teacher. 

He says the parents slashed crops such as bananas, cassava, beans and maize among others to express their dissatisfaction with the transfer of Wangwe.     

Wilberforce Wandela, a parent, says they are opposed to the transfer of Wangwe, saying he has brought development to the school within a very short time compared to his predecessor.

Patrick Mulyalya, another parent praised Wangwe for uplifting the school in terms of teacher’s commitment towards duty, improving enrollment and performance.     

//Cue in: “Office yo DEO… 

Cue out:…baana ingaji”//   

Moses Nambale, the Sironko District Education Officer called for calm amongst parents, saying that they have halted the transfer plans. 

Moses Nasaaga, the Bukise Sub County LC III chairperson condemned the parent’s conduct over something he termed minor.     

He cautioned them against taking the law in their hands and advised them to find other peaceful means to address their issues.

Isaac Lulaba, the Sironko Resident District Commissioner, said Wangwe has been acting head teacher that is why they wanted to post a substantive Head teacher.  

He asked district authorities to respect the parent’s decision if they insist they want Wangwe as head teacher.
