Rukungiri Woman MP reminds Prime Minister on unfulfilled gov’t promises to hailstorm hit Schools


NEWS– The Rukungiri district Woman Member of Parliament Hon Midius Natukunda Kaharata has called upon the office of the Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja to urgently fulfill the government’s pledges to schools that were destroyed by hailstorm in Rukungiri district in October last year.

Hon. Natukunda made the remarks in Parliament last week following the delay in relief items that the office of the prime minister promised three schools including Kyaburere Primary in Bungangari sub county, Nyaruubare in Nyakyishenyi and Kakamba in Buhunga sub bcounty after members of prime minister’s office visited them last year.

Natukunda narrated that only Kakamba primary school in Buhunga sub county received 176 iron sheets from the office of Prime Minister to roof their building which was blown off by wind last year leaving out other two schools which she now wants to also be considered.

The legislator added that the other two schools whose pledges have not been fulfilled  are now struggling with inadequate classrooms to cater for the enrollment in their schools hence calling upon the office of the Prime Minister to speed up and consider them as they promised during the visit.


This forced the Deputy Speaker of Parliament Rt Hon Thomas Tayebwa  to ask the Prime Minister Robinah Nabbajja who was present in the house to shed more light about the issue of the Rukungiri schools. 

In her response, Nabbanja noted that those schools will soon be considered  since her office  visited them and ascertained the level of damage.


Wednesday Twinomujuni the Nyakyishenyi sub county chairperson told the press that its true Nyarubare primary school is in a sorry state and parents have tried their level best to raise some money to construct some classrooms but resources have been inadequate.

He appealed to the office of prime minister to consider it as her office promised when they visited the school in october last year shortly after the calamity.
