The commissioner of teacher training, Dr Jane Egau-Okou noted that increasingly, students were resorting to needless strikes, thus wasting time and resources.
We have had many conflicts and strikes. And once the students are disorganised, the teachers too cannot prepare for lessons. You cannot progress, no matter how much you try. That is what is happening in our schools,” she said.

UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is working with partner organizations in western Uganda to support a growing number of people, most of them women and children, fleeing horrific inter-ethnic violence and sexual abuse in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). More than 57,000 refugees have been displaced by the violence in eastern DRC since the beginning of this year. An overwhelming majority – some 77.5 per cent – are women and children.

These numbers are on a larger scale still than in 2017 when some 44,000 fled over the course of the entire year.
