Kapchorwa, (UG):- The suspended S.4 students of Sebei College Tegeres have been tasked to pay Shs100,000 each for the destruction they caused during the strike over food on Thursday.

The decision was reached following a parent’s meeting which was held on Saturday July 06 at the school premises in Kapchorwa.

According to the chairperson Board of Governors, Mr Sabila Herbert Muge, each student will pay 100k Ushs which will be used for the renovation of the damaged school properties.

“On Friday, we held several emergency meetings at the school which consisted of different individuals ranging from the RDC, DPC, and other stakeholders. In the meetings, it was resolved that s.4 students who were the ring leaders of the strike be suspended indefinitely and parents meeting be held on Saturday 6/07/2024 to discuss on other issues,” Mr Muge said.

He further revealed that, during the meeting which was held on Saturday, 6, it was also resolved that suspended students, report back to school on 14/07/2024.

Mr Muge also noted that, in the meeting, it was agreed that the renovation works start immediately so that at the time students return, most of the damaged property would have been repaired.

“During the assessment which was made by the district engineer on Friday, it was discovered that property Worth 56 million shillings was destroyed. Following the Bills Of quantities (BOQs) each student was to pay 212k Ushs but the parents cried out that it was much and it was scaled to 100k Ushs,” he said.

Acknowledging a gap in money, Mr Muge said the school administration will see how to handle the remaining balance so that the renovation works are completed.

He however advised the parents to always to their children before they send them to school to avoid such scenarios.

Kipmos Abraham the Vice chairman of the board noted that some of the students have never been canned in their entire lives by their parents and when teachers try to cain them, the revolt saying that if their parents have never cained them, then who’s the teacher to do so.
