Police arrests head teacher over issuing falsified PLE results

Must read

Police in Kyambogo, Kampala, have arrested the head teacher of Bubaare Primary School in Bushenyi, Ms. Lillian Ayebazibwe over allegations of issuing falsified results to 2023 PLE candidates of the school. 

UNEB revealed that the head teacher yesterday appeared before the UNEB Examinations Security Committee with thirty (30) out of 114 candidates whose results were withheld by the board.

The candidates’ results were withheld on suspicion of involvement in examination malpractice, in the form of external assistance. The candidates were appearing before the UNEB Examinations Security Committee for a fair hearing before a final verdict could be given. 

“The gist of the matter is that the Headteacher, issued testimonials with false results to her candidates for Senior One admission. One of the recipient parents contacted UNEB to verify the authenticity of the results. UNEB checked the results in the system and confirmed that they were forged,” UNEB noted.

Samples of the false testimonials were shown to the security committee, and the results indicated thereon differed from the ones withheld by UNEB.  

Subsequently, the Examinations Security Committee conducted a hearing for the candidates in respect to external assistance.  The candidates defended themselves and after evaluation, the Committee released some results and cancelled others.

The board has therefore notified all secondary schools which have admitted students from Bubaare Primary School to contact UNEB as soon as possible, to verify the results of the learners.

Parents have also been advised to use the SMS option on their phone handsets to verify the results of their candidates. Adding, “You need to know the index number of the candidate, type PLE or UCE as the case may be, leave space, put the full index number and send it to 6600.”
