UNEB has cleared the air on rumors making rounds especially on social media that it has clashed with the Ministry of Education on the re-opening of schools, and has not set plans for the national examinations.
In a press release from the Executive Secretary, Mr. Dan Odongo, the examination body said it has been brought to their attention of rumours about a clash with the Ministry of Education about the re-opening of schools. UNEB has insisted that the claims are false.
“We would like to clarify that this is not correct. Several media houses have been calling UNEB to find out its state of readiness to conduct the national examinations, and when those examinations would be conducted.
“The response every time has been that UNEB will not make any comments on how ready it is to conduct the examinations until there is an official communication from either H.E The President or the Minister of Education and sports on the re-opening of schools. This doesn’t amount to a ‘clash’!” Part of the statement reads.
The examinations body said it is in preparations to conduct the national examinations at an appropriate time in line with the Ministry of Education revised school calendar that will be published.
“UNEB is proceeding with its preparations to conduct the national examinations at an appropriate time, and in accordance with a revised school calendar which will be published by the Ministry of Education and sports when schools re-open.”
