A total of 17 senior four students at Kabale Secondary School in Kabale Municipality will tomorrow start Uganda Certificate of Educations-UCE escorted by their parents or police for staging a violent strike at the school.
This was resolved today during an emergency meeting of members of Parent Teacher Association with parents of senior four students that was held at the school main hall in Kabale municipality. The meeting follows a violent trike that occurred yesterday afternoon at the school in Kabale Municipality.

According to the school head teacher, Edwin Niwagaba Babimpa while speaking in the meeting, the senior four students refused to take morning breakfast claiming that there is no sugar, and after taking lunch, they destroyed all the school plates and went away with school forks.
They also went violent and destroyed the ceiling in senior four B, destroyed school properties such as fire extinguishers, electric bulbs, chairs and tables, window glasses among others. The students also wanted to set fire to the school.
During the meeting, the 17 students were also asked to come with a parent or a police officer and bring 20 forks each before they are briefed today for the Uganda Certificate of Educations.
The School Parent Teacher Association Vice Chairperson Jatham Kanyonyozi said that it is disgusting to find that some the students go to school with sachets of waragi and marijuana who denies them time to concentrate on education.
