The State of Muslim founded schools and quality of education in Katonga region has irked Prince Kassim Nakibinge, the patron of Uganda Muslim Education Association-UMEA.  

During his three day’s visit to Katonga region that comprises Gomba, Butambala and Mpigi districts, Nakibinge noted with concern the sorry state of Muslim founded schools and their poor performance.

 

Nakibinge also noted that whereas some Secondary schools are performing well, majority of the primary schools and some secondary schools are limping. 

Speaking at Mpigi district headquarters on Friday evening, Nakibinge instructed secondary school administrators to identify three limping schools to partner with those performing well for assistance.

He expects the secondary schools to help those they are partnering with by giving them scholastic materials, helping them to print question papers, and offering them advise where necessary.

Prince Nakibinge noted that although each institution has its own challenges, but those that are performing well can intervene and help those that haven’t made it to their level.

Cue out …bakyali bato balina okuyiga,”//  

Peter Claver Mutuluza, the Mpigi LC 5 chairperson commended the support extended to the entire district and its activities by the Muslim community. 

He requested Prince Nakibinge through UMEA not to leave the burden of Muslim founded schools to the district  just because they are aided by government. 

He said that as the foundation bodies insist on the policy of having a head teacher subscribing to that particular religion, they should also take an active part in inspecting and supervising the schools.

Cue out… munyweze ne quality eyabaana,”//

Sheik Abdu Kaweesa Wadda, the West Buganda Kadhi said that if implemented, Nakibinge’s intervention and directive will bring life to the schools. Which currently lack life. 

The head teachers and directors of some schools reported to Nakibinge that despite the presence of Muslim founded schools, parents have opted to take their children elsewhere. 

However, Jamila Naluyange one of the parents urged the school to do more if they are to get pupils.
