50 Teachers in Jinja Sacked for Incompetence

Fifty primary school teachers in Jinja have been struck off the education service commission for lack of academic qualifications. The decision by the District Education service commission stems from reports that incompetent teachers have increasingly infiltrated primary schools in Jinja. The suspects either presented fake academic documents or have no training at all. Irene Mawanda, a member of the jinja district service commission, says that the culprits were detected after they failed to appear before the district service commission, for the verification of their papers. On August 31st, the Jinja district service commission 'summoned more than 60 teachers for the verification excrcise. Only 12 teachers turned up for the exercise. Mawanda says that all those who failed to appear before the education service commission ceased to be teachers. Ben Otim Ogwate, The Chief Administrative Officer, says files of the affected teachers have been handed over to the criminal investigations department for investigation. The teachers could be summoned to police for interrogation.
