The Ministry of Education and Sports has issued an immediate ban on any activities related to sexual desire and pressure in both primary and secondary Schools until guidelines have been put in place.
The ban, which take immediate effect is to be implemented in both government and private primary and secondary schools.
This is contained in a circular which was issued out to all school head teachers and Principals by Dr Jane Okou on behalf of the Ministry Permanent Secretary.
“Head teachers and Principals of both Primary and Secondary Schools are cautioned not to hire or allow any of these “artists” to perform in schools. Failure to comply, will lead to school managers being personally held responsible and disciplinary measures charged against them,” reads part of the document.
The ministry further noted that extracurricular activities in school normally mean sports and games, debate clubs, etc and if schools need to entertain themselves, then they can engage in acting plays or arrange concerts.
This come after last month Tororo Woman MP Hon Sarah Acheing Opendi told parliament that the rate at which musicians are spreading indecency in schools is alarming and therefore called for the banning of secular musicians from performing in schools.
