Parents of Lweza Primary School in Mukono district have gone on a strike demanding the transfer of the school headteacher.
The angry parents stormed the school premises as early as 07:00am.They have refused to return their children to the school until its headmistress Loy Nantongo whom they accuse of mismanaging it has been removed.
They accuse Nantongo of failing to present accountability of the school’s funds and subjecting their children to corporal punishments which they claim affected the pupils’ performance in the recent Primary Leaving Exams.
Led by the chairman PTA Daniel Kaweesa, Lweza PS parents have been demanding for the transfer of Nantongo since last year but nothing has changed.
When contacted, the District Education Officer Vincent Baraza whom parents have denied chance to speak to them said that the headmistress will be transferred within four days.
Efforts to reach Headmistress Nantongo were futile as her phone was switched off.
