The Uganda National Examination Board has said it is not aware about the intended reopening of any schools and has not set any plan for national examinations.
The Uneb executive secretary Daniel Odongo says that they do not have an official communication, so they cannot comment on whether UNEB exams will be done or not until they receive communication from the President or the Minister herself.
This comes after the senior presidential adviser on epidemics, Dr Monica Musenero confirmed that the national task force and president Museveni agreed to reopen schools for finalists and candidate classes starting September 20th during their meeting held on September 1 2020.
At the closure of schools in March by president Museveni due to covid-19 pandemic, the board had not registered candidates which was slated to kick off on April 1.
Mean while, Ugandans are still pondering on whether the planned school re-opening is safe for the children with the increasing number of Covid-19 cases in the recent weeks especially in the central region. The news of UNEB claiming not to have received any formal communication from the Ministry of Edication and Sports, or the President leaves many unanswered questions.
