Fair hearing needed for withheld results

By Ritah Kemigisa

The state Minister for Agriculture, Christopher Kibazanga has called for a fair hearing for the pupils and schools whose PLE results were withheld by the Uganda National Examinations Board.

Majority of the over 3000 2018 PLE results withheld are for schools located in Bundibugyo.

The board’s Executive Secretary Dan Odongo said some parents in this district also paid shs 50,000 to facilitate the process of cheating.

However Minister Kibazanga, also Member of Parliament for Bughendera County in Bundibugyo district says not all schools and pupils were engaged in exam malpractice.
