Kampala - A primary school teacher who was caught red-handed while having an affair with a married female colleague surprised his students and other teachers when he fled naked.
Chris Ngolo, a teacher at Baliwala private primary school, located in eastern Uganda district of Mayuge, fled as the husband of the teacher ran after him.
The female teacher's house is located at one side of the school compound while Ngolo resides a distance away from the school.
Students shouted in excitement as he ran as fast as his legs could carry him into a nearby bush to hide.
According to one of his fellow teachers, Andrew Magemeso, Ngolo had been having affair with the female teacher for sometime.
''He usually met the woman her house especially during day when both have no lessons. But today the man came during the day and caught him in action,'' said Magemeso.
He added on that since he was caught in the act, the school administration is likely to sack him.





Governors have opposed the government’s e-procurement system earmarked to seal corruption loopholes claiming that it was not friendly to them. In a statement to the press, they asked the Central Government to suspend the plan until they were consulted as well as allow County personnel to familiarize themselves with it.

“On procurement, the activation of the same must be put on hold until all personnel at the County level have been fully trained on the setting and use of the system,” read the statement in part.

The Governors further accused the Government of introducing a supplier portal which seeks to centralize the tendering process, a move they claimed will affect devolution.

“The council strongly opposes the inception of this programme because it will erode and offend the objects of devolution on ensuring equitable sharing of national and local resources throughout the country,” said the Governors.



In a circular dated July 27, Education Cabinet Secretary Jacob Kaimenyi has directed all county directors of education to ensure all secondary schools in their regions comply with the fees guidelines that were published in a Gazette notice issued on March 10 and ensure that the ban on holiday tuition is enforced.

 "With government capitation of Sh 12,870 for regular schools and Sh32,600 for special needs schools, the maximum payable fees by parents should be Sh 9,374 for day schools, Sh53,553 for boarding schools and Sh37,210 for special needs schools," he said.
He said schools were supposed to spread the fees in the three terms at the ratio of 50:30:20.
 "You are required to ensure no schools, without exception, in your jurisdiction conduct holiday tuition," he stated. He claimed that holiday tuition had been turned into a “commercial enterprise through which teachers earn illegal income”.

Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet, Muranga Governor Mwangi Wairia and acting Lands CS Fred Matiang'i during a joint press conference in the county on Thursday.
 

Directors of trouble-ridden Kihiu Mwiri land firm have been ordered to appear at CID Headquarters after the killing of two members yesterday. Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinnet said the company's current and past officials will be questioned in Nairobi at 9 am on Friday.
He spoke at a joint press conference in Murang'a county, with acting Lands CS Fred Matiang'i and Governor Mwangi Wairia, after a closed-door meeting over the issue.
Matiang'i said the ministry will expedite the subdivision of the land in dispute and double to 100 the number of arbitrators appointed to settle the issue.
To stop the bloodshed, Matiang’i appointed a team two months ago to complete resurveying 1,082 acres and prepare title deeds for the 6,000 shareholders by September 4.
Wairia condemned the killings and said the process of issuing titles will be completed by September.
"This madness must stop. Enough is enough!" he said on his twitter account on Thursday.
The murders are suspected to have been sparked by leadership wrangles after shareholders split into two rival groups fighting for leadership.
