A few hours ago Pop star turned Politician and Presidential aspirant Robert Kyagulanyi Ssentamu aka Bobi wine wished all the UNEB candidates 2019 at all levels including Senior Four, Primary Seven and Senior Six respectively the best of luck in their fourth coming examinations among which the Senior Four candidates commenced theirs on Friday with Briefing and they have finished their first practical paper today morning.
In his message to the candidates, Bobi wine reminded them that the Nation is looking at them with hope as the next generation that will confront the Challenges our Country is facing and uplift it to the next level without fear.
However the Minister for Education and Sports doubling as First lady having a read Bobi wine’s strong message to the candidates she was prompted to also put up a message on her Social media for the candidates one hour ago when they were almost done with their first paper.
The First Lady Janet Museveni had this to say:
“To all children sitting for examinations this season, a new day is before you to weigh your will for greater heights. Success is a journey traveled by the faithful. Best wishes in your examinations” God bless you.
On the other note Uganda National Examinations Board (Uneb) has also stepped up efforts to sensitize school authorities against examination malpractice.
The vice, which has increasingly become part and parcel of Uganda’s education system, is attributed to various factors including the commercialization of the education sector. This has resulted into stiff competition between schools, desire for parents to have their children in the best schools, piled pressure on teachers and school administrators to produce results among others.
