Unavailability of transport means hindering School inspectors’ targets


NEWS– The Inspectors of Schools from various districts across the Country under Uganda National Inspectors of Schools Association (UNISA), have decried the unavailability of transport means in their respective districts.

They were on Monday speaking at National Teachers College-NTC Kabale, during the Annual general meeting that started today, ending on Wednesday, under the theme “Renew and Rebuild to regain excellence through Resilience.

The Chairperson of UNISA, who is also the Inspector of Kayunga district Moses Olok said that they are unable to perform effectively without constant transport means as Inspectors of schools, yet they play a big role in monitoring all the schools in the district.


The Rubanda district Inspector of school Francis Bamunyangyira, and his counterparts of Bugweri District Betty Grace Kutolawo, and that of Bugiri district David Tenywa said that they are inconvenienced by transport means where most of the times they depend on the vehicle of District Education officers or at times hire vehicles costing Ugx 100,000 for a day. 

They want the government to give priority to purchasing vehicles in order to ease their work.
