LOCKDOWN HAZARDS: Over 150 girls in Koboko impregnated during lock down, Minister appeals to Gov’t to consider reopening schools

KOBOKO-Over 150 young girls in Koboko district have been impregnated during this extensive lockdown which has compelled Minister, Evelyn Anite to ask the government to consider reopening of schools to curb this negative trend.

During his 17th national address about the country’s progress on the fight against COVID-19, President Yoweri Museveni said a decision on reopening of schools will be made before September.  

Museveni said it could be a dead year, they could allow only the candidates to return or the decision will be easier if the world can discover a Coronavirus vaccine.

 While picking nomination forms to rerun for the Koboko Municipality Member of Parliament seat, Investment Minister Evelyn Anite asked the government to quickly decide on the matter of reopening schools.

Hon. Anite revealed that over 150 young girls in Koboko Municipality have been impregnated during the COVID-19 lock down. She said as they wait on the government’s decision, as a leader, she intends to convene meetings involving all leaders at different levels to see how to handle the matter. Reopening of schools has continuously been postponed due to fear of the spread of the deadly virus since the majority of schools cannot afford to meet the required Standard Operating Procedures.
