Yesterday, Saturday, June 10, 2023, the Rukungiri Municipality Member of Parliament, Hon. Dr. Elisa Rutahigwa (OMUTURAGYE), presented 80 iron sheets for the building of the teachers’ house at Rukondo Primary School in the western division of the Rukungiri Municipality.

During the handover ceremony, Hon. Rutahigwa expressed his concerns about the school’s academic performance after hearing from the PTA and Board Chairpersons of Rukondo Primary School, Idi Misho and Frank Begumisa, respectively, that the teachers who travel far distances to attend classes are not being accommodated.

Since it was his constituency, the Hon. Rutahigwa continued, he was compelled to step in and chose to complete the roofing of the house.

He declared that improving the quality of education in Rukungiri Municipality would be a high priority for the nation, saying that it still remained one of his top priorities.

“As a Member of Parliament for Rukungiri Municipality, I wish to assure you that we shall leave no stone unturned in our quest to make quality education accessible to every child in our Municipality,” he said.

The legislator urged teachers of Rukondo Primary School to set clear objectives and performance targets to help their school to shine.
