Education Ministry speaks out on reopening schools in May 2022


NEWS– The Ministry of Education and Sports in Uganda has distanced itself from allegations of reopening schools in May 2022.

Recently, a screenshot made rounds on social media alleging that the Ministry is set to reopen Educational institutions in the coming year.

In a tweet issued by the Ministry, the information is fake and the public should disregard it and treat it as fake and lacking authenticity.

“FAKE NEWS ALERT! Please disregard this post (image) below” a Statement noted. 

The same tweet added that only the Ministry of Education and Sports is the only credible office to announce the reopening dates.

“A substantial date for re-opening of schools will only be communicated by our office” the tweet added.

Government closed down Educational institutions in June as a means to stem the increment in COVID-19 cases and the fact that these places has turned into epicenters of the scourge.

In her latest message on Monday, the Education Minister Janet Museveni noted that the government will reopen Schools when it’s due.
