Hundreds of Pupils in Masaka still stranded over failure to buy school requirements.

By Ali Mambule

Three  weeks into the second school term, hundreds of pupils in Masaka District are still stranded in their homes over failure of their parents to raise money to buy school requirements.

Parents claim that they have not raised money to pay school fees in private schools as well as buying scholastic materials to take their children back to school.

This is what prompted former Masaka woman MP Freda Mubanda to come to their rescue and donated items  including books, pens, geometry sets and pencils to  over 200 children to help  them report to school. While distributing school items in Kimaanya-Kyabakuza and Soweto in Katwe-Butego Divisions  on Wednesday Mubanda said she had received a number of requests from parents and children to help them.
