Uganda: Universal A’level starts next year
THE NRM 2011 presidential candidate, Yoweri Museveni, has promised free education for A’level students starting next year.

Museveni made the promise at different rallies in Lango sub-region. The Government is already providing free education at O’level.

“We have given you free primary education, free education at O’level, and now starting next year, we shall give you free education at HSC,” Museveni said yesterday at a rally in Alebtong district.

The party’s manifesto promises to extend free secondary education from ordinary to advanced level. The ruling National Resistance Movement party first promised to introduce free secondary education during the 2006 presidential campaigns.

Started four years ago, 110,000 students under the scheme of candidates will this week complete their for final O’Level examinations. A total of 264,560 students registered for the exams countrywide.

Under the country’s education system, a student with A’ level certificate or its equivalent can join the university.

Museveni was yesterday was given rousing welcome by NRM supporters in Alebtong. He warned head teachers against charging fees in government schools saying when the system is supposed to be free, it must bear no charges.

“It is not my plan to charge extra fees. When you say free education and then you charge money, which language do you understand?” He asked to the deafening cheering of the wanainchi.

The President also promised to rehabilitate old secondary schools and build laboratory. He cautioned head teachers against charging parents fees for building classrooms saying it is the work of government to do so and promised his government would construct more classrooms in the next five years.

“We want parents to be free, to use their money to engage in other issues that promote development,” he said.

He said in Lira district, before UPE was introduced, there were only 26,000 pupils enrolled in Primary schools but today over 79,000 are enrolled in Primary schools.

He added that before the introduction of USE, only 11,000 students were enrolled in Secondary Schools compared to today’s 15,000 students.

Ministry of Education Publicist Aggrey Kibenge was yesterday guarded on the scheme when we sought out comments from him.

“As you know NRM is in charge, if it makes such a commitment, it means it has done ground work. If a government makes such promises, it is different,” said Kibenge .Asked if this had been discussed by the technical team at the ministry, he said, “I trust it has been discussed.

Government began offering free secondary education to 250,000 students in February of 2007. It increased the transition rate from primary to secondary school from 46% to 69%. Currently, the scheme is being implemented in 1,471 government and some private schools covering about 579,734 students.​

If a landlocked country without any mine is affording to provide free education from primary school to A level why not Tanzania? Basically, this old party with old ideology does not want the poor Tanzanians to get educated. People who support these corrupt power hunger like Malaria Sugu do not deserve to live.......Guys we need to think about poor, innocent cilivilians. We should work away from supporting parties and think about our well being

Slaa si alisema mkamkatalia?haya oneni jirani hapo anaweza.Halafu wanasiasa ni waongo na pia wengine vilaza sana,swala la kulipia elimu na afya ni shinikizo la International Monetary Fund na World Bank.Hizi taasisi mbili zimekuwa zikirudisha nyuma maendeleo ktk nchi za dunia ya 3 kwa mwavuli wa kutusaidia.Ujinga wetu Tanzania unatugharimu na sijui lini tutaerevuka.

Im telling you they will work on free education within 5 years to come. They know its possible but as they are afraid of facing big challenges they thought it cannot be done. But the problem here as i see it should not be free education, but the quality of that education. You can have free education up to university level but if its quality is poor, then its better not to have it in the first place. Why one should waste his/her time while at the end of the day you cannot compete in this globalized world?
