The Permanent Secretary in the ministry of Education and Sports, Dr.Rose Nasali has revealed that the education sector is heading to achieving big following the appointment of the first lady Janet Museveni as cabinet minister for education.
In his recent appointments for ministers, President Yoweri Museveni appointed the first lady Janet M7 as education minister.
The sector permanent Secretary Dr.Rose Nasali observes that the education and sports ministry is heading to big after the appointment o Janet Museveni who had transformed the lives of Karamojong when she was the minister in charge of the region’s affairs.
She was speaking to the District Chairman Kabarole Mr.Rwabuhinga Richard and Chief Administrative Officer Kabarole Mr.Muron Ocakara Nicholas in the chairman’s office Kitumba on Friday on her assessment tour of education projects in the district.
Dr.Nasali says she is optimistic that with the appointment of the first lady, the education sector is facing transformation because whatever challenges of lack of teachers, poor payments and infrastructure among others the minister experiences, she will have to discuss about it with her husband to ensure the problems are overcome.
Dr.Nasali commended the district leadership for the good performance at P.L.E and advised the leaders to encourage parents to contribute tirelessly towards the education of their children. This after the CAO told her that the leaders in Kabarole mobilise the parents to contribute to some projects.
Mr.Rwabuhinga remained the PS about the pledges of constructing Buhinga stadium as an income earner and tourism boost and construction of a memorial secondary school for Late Nobel Mayombo that are overdue.
In her response, Dr.Nasali the ministry received their requests and were captured in the data base but priorities were given to the demands that were submitted earlier in 2010/11 due to the little funds but added they will be considered.
