The Primary Leaving Examinations Results are now available. Parents are busy shopping for good schools where to take children. A parent gets to a school with cut off points say 5 yet when his child got 6. He is told off that the child did not make the mark. The parent is not ready to leave the Head teacher’s office without a solution.
The parent is then told that he can get a place if he parts with shs 1,000,000! The nature of some of our parents is such that the shs 1,000,000 may have been organized in advance as some body may have told him simply to come with an envelope with that lot.
What happens to the shs 1,000,000?
1. Some head teachers use this to bribe their continued stay in office by paying their immediate bosses.
2. In some schools, members of the school Boards have a share of say 3 children admitted through window two. When the admission is complete, such a board member goes home with shs 3,000,000! Is that bad money? Why not leave Museveni alone as long as one is sure of getting such money?
