Government has taken over the running of Kabigi Taqawa Islamic Primary School in Bukomansimbi district after Muslim leaders failed to agree on who should run it.
The decision was taken by Bukomansimbi District Resident Commissioner Sharon Ankunda. She said that the government decided to take over running of the school to enable pupils begin their education which had failed to take place since Monday, September 5 due to disagreements.
Ankunda explained that, ““We cannot see children sitting outside the gate when others are studying so as security we come in as UN to rescue.”
“We have decided to take over the Kabigi Taqwa Islamic Primary School since the Muslims have failed to decide on who should manage this school,” Ankunda added.
