MUKONO — The Bishop of Mukono Diocese Rt Rev. James William Ssebaggala warned Church founded school against teaching sex education, saying the programme has no approval from the church.
Rev. Ssebagala who was officiating at the
grand opening of Muzza High School in Kabembe Village, Mukono District said the Church reused sex education in its schools.
“The Church of Uganda refused sex education in its schools, we don’t expect you to engage in such work because that is one of the ways the enemy is sowing his seed of gayism,” Rev. Ssebagala said.
Bishops in the country vowed to block the sex education programme in all their schools unless the government made changes in the new policy.
The Church is criticizing aspects of the policy, that contradicted values.
The Ministry of Education officials went ahead to launch the adolescent health and sexuality education in schools to equip students with information to sexual related content, without the approval of the Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox establishments in the country.
Meanwhile, Rev. Ssebaggala also urged parents to do their part in raising their children instead of just leaving them to the schools.
Rev. Ssebaggala also spoke against examination malpractice
“Avoid cheating examinations for your students for they are the future of this nation,” he said.
Quoting the bible Matthew 13:24-28, Rev Ssebaggala asked teachers to be on the look out as the enemy will plant bad seeds in their schools through the new school curriculum.
“As directors and teachers be on guard, watch everything going on in school because the enemy will plant a bad seed,” he added.
The Spokesperson of Buganda Kingdom Mr. Noah Kiyimba also advised the students to use their brains to get legitimate grades instead of cheating.
“Students who cheat in school end up being ‘pen thieves,” he said
Mr. Wilson Muzzangada Mukiibi the Founder Muzza High School told PML Daily that as management, they will ensure students are taught to be job creators instead of job seekers.
“We shall train the students with skills like music, crafts and develop those with talents like sports so they can employ themselves.” Mr. Muzzangada said.
