KAMPALA – As UNEB releases the 2020 Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) results on Friday July 30, 2021, police have issued warning to all schools “against violating the pandemic rules by holding school celebrations.”
Through this, police say students can easily get exposed to the deadly virus during such risky settings.
“Therefore, all Headteachers are advised to either postpone the school celebrations to some future time when schools are reopened or hold a virtual celebration,” said police on their social media platforms on Friday morning.
“Remember there are harsh consequences in form of fines, penalties and punishments for COVID-19 offenders.”
The results will be officially released by the Minister for Education and Sports, Janet K. Museveni at a scientific release at State House, Nakasero involving a few invited guests, according to Education Ministry.
Ms. Jennifer Kalule Musamba, UNEB, spokesperson said the release exercise will be conducted in observance of the COVID-19 Standard Operating Procedures (SOPS) at noon.
