Speaker Demands Clarity on Controversial Teacher Exams in Nakaseke

Speaker Anita Among has called on the Ministry of Education and Sports to explain the circumstances around Ignatius Koomu’s decision to administer a mock PLE exam to teachers, following the Ministry’s initial silence on the issue in March 2024.

Allan Mayanja, MP for Nakaseke Central, expressed concern over the Ministry’s lack of response and noted that Koomu had released the exam results despite parliamentary concerns.

Mayanja cited disparities in the results, with scores ranging from 27% in Mathematics to 92%, although he had not yet received a copy of the results.

The Speaker encouraged Mayanja to obtain the results from Koomu for reference.

Last month, Ignatius Koomu Kiwanuka, the LCV chairperson of Nakaseke district, administered PLE mock exams to 40 P7 teachers at Nakaseke Technical Institute after poor performance by their students in PLE 2023. Teachers faced potential demotion for failure.

Speaker Among directed the Ministry of Education to provide details on Kiwanuka’s actions in response to MP Mayanja’s concerns.

Mayanja shared the teachers’ discontent, calling the assessment disrespectful and urging clarification on its policy implementation and implications for those who passed or failed.

Minister of State for Higher Education, John Muyingo, expressed surprise at Kiwanuka’s actions and revealed that a ministry team is investigating the situation in Nakaseke.

He promised Parliament a report on the findings once investigations conclude
