The management of Ntare School in Mbarara City, western Uganda, has suspended all Form six students indefinitely for allegedly vandalizing security cameras on the school premises. In a circular dated October 3, 2023, addressed to the parents of the students and signed by the head teacher, Mr. Saul Rwampororo, the school’s board of governors will convene to decide the appropriate course of action in response to the vandalism.
According to the circular, the decision to suspend the entire senior six class was made after the students displayed a high degree of indiscipline by deliberately destroying school property, including recently installed CCTV cameras.
The suspension is likely to disrupt the upcoming national exams scheduled to begin on November 10, 2023. The school administrators did not provide details about the reasons behind the vandalism, and the students were reportedly hostile towards the media when visited by reporters.
The Rwizi region police spokesperson, Mr. Samson Kasasira, mentioned that the police were called in to restore order and escort the students off the school premises. Ntare School is a well-known and historically high-performing institution in western Uganda and has produced prominent figures, including Presidents Yoweri Museveni and Paul Kagame of Rwanda, along with other senior government officials.
