Kadaga warns schools over alcohol and substance abuse

SPEAKER OF PARLIAMENT REBECCA KADAGA AND THE AMBASSADOR HE. KAZUAKI KAMEDA TOURING A GIRLS DOMITORY CONSTRUCTED BY JAPANS GOVERNMENT TO MATUUMU SECONDARY SCHOOL 3849The Speaker of Parliament, Rebecca Kadaga, has sounded alarm bells over growing alcohol and substance abuse by school going children.
Kadaga said students are devising sophisticated means to smuggle the substances into schools, asking administrators and parents to step up vigilance over the youngsters.
“I was told the issue of substance abuse in schools is a very serious issue. At a meeting in Kampala, experts told me they [students] even soak bread in alcohol to evade scrutiny. Whenever they go out, you must check what they have brought to the dormitory,” said Kadaga.
Kadaga was presiding over the commissioning of a dormitory at Matuumu Secondary School in Kamuli district.
The Ushs300 million facility, constructed by the Japanese government, was a replacement for another that was hit by a storm in 2015.
“I had come to address the issue of food following a big storm here but the locals told me to forget about food as their school dormitory had been ravaged by the storm,” said Kadaga.
Japan’s Ambassador to Uganda, H.E. Kazuaki Kameda, said their government is committed to financing infrastructural projects in the country.
Kameda said availing students with the appropriate study environment is the cornerstone of academic excellence.
“We believe that providing the students with a conducive learning environment is key, which is why we are dedicated to supporting the education sector,” said Kameda.
The Minister of State for Urban Development, also Buzaaya County MP, Isaac Musumba, challenged the school administration to improve students’ academic performance.
Musumba said the school has excuses to make about its poor performance, tasking the headmaster to do all he can to alleviate the school’s dismal performance.
The Headmaster, Anthony Kabakubya, said he will make the necessary amends to ensure better performance, but hastened to add that majority of his staff are not on government payroll, which he said badly affects learning.
Kabakubya said the school’s enrolment has hit 1,300 and promised improved performance.
