The Ministry of Education and Sports is aware of the incident on Midland High School – Kampala bus and shall liaise with relevant agencies of the State in establishing the facts and informing appropriate action,” the ministry’s spokesperson, Mr. Dennis Mugimba tweeted moments after police also said they had picked interest in the incident.
The Ugandan Police is making investigations over the alleged explicit video of students from Lubiri High School, who were “dancing’ in a school bus hired from Midland High School, on their way from an Agricultural trip in Jinja.
Talking to the public, Fred Enanga, the Police spokesperson said that footage had been retrieved and is being examined to understand what exactly happened.
“Our investigations are going to zero on Lubiri High School because we have footage which shows the movement of the bus from Midland High school up to Lubiri, picked the students, took them for the agricultural show in Jinja and how they returned,” Mr. Enanga said.
To him, the school administrators were not careful enough to oversee the actions of the students.
“The big question is, how the incident occurred on a school bus, without the knowledge of the school staff, driver, we are going to establish if a teacher was on the bus with the students or was supposed to be with them and did not, whether protocol on safety and security of students was observed, who organized the field tour and the list of students that were on the bus, and if any students used their power to exploit other students that were on the bus if any students were victimized by other exploitative students,” Enanga said.
The behavior has since been condemned by a large section of members of the public including parents, guardians, educationists, and the general public.
