Rukungiri WMP. Hon. Natukunda donates jerrycans of paints to renovate Nyakibale Lower P/S


Hon. Natukunda Midius Kaharata, a woman representative for the Rukungiri district, has underlined that parents, not just the government, are to blame for the education and upbringing of their children.

The revelation was made by Hon. Natukunda over the weekend while presenting Nyakibale Lower Primary School with six jerrycans of paint that she had promised to provide as part of the fundraising effort for the refurbishment of classroom blocks.

According to Hon. Natukunda, it is the parents’ duty to make sure that their children can complete their education with assistance from the government.

She added that the government comes in to provide support but cannot afford all the requirements needed for a child to finish school calling on parents to intervene for the betterment of the future generation.

“It is the duty of parents to maintain their children decently, to protect them according to the dictates of prudence, and to educate them according to the suggestions of a judicious and zealous regard for their usefulness, their respectability, and their happiness”, She stated.

“Do your part as a parent to support your children to school because you don’t know what your child will be in future. The only reward you can give your children is good education”, She added.

Hon. Midius challenged parents to resist the temptation of prioritizing the boy child unlike their female counterparts, saying the girls can equally perform well like the boy child. 

“Educate the girl child; let them have equal opportunities with those of the boys. This will help to contain the increasing early pregnancies and early marriages,” Hon. Midius said. 


Byarugaba Henry the Nyakibale Lower Primary School head teacher who received the paint on behalf of the school thanked Hon. Midius for her kind gesture and pledged to use them for the intended purpose.


The woman MP’s support for the school, according to Natukunda Patrick Jeje, the PTA chairperson at Nyakibale Lower Primary School, will encourage parents to become involved and address several problems at their school that have been hindering pupils’ improved performance.
