The State Minister for Higher Education John Chrysostom Muyingo has cautioned parents against keeping school-going children at home and says that those who fail to heed, risk arrest.
Muyingo says that he has received reports in his office of many parents who are still failing to return children to schools reportedly due to lack of school fees and scholastic materials.
He said this is unacceptable, at a time when the government is providing universal Primary and secondary education.
The concern comes almost two months after the reopening of schools following two years of a lockdown occasioned by an outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
During the time of the lockdown, several Ugandans had their livelihood distorted by the COVID-19 Pandemic due to restrictions on movement, interactions and operations.
