Buhweju MP Opposes Teaching of Chinese Language

Following recent reports that government had okayed the teaching of Chinese language in Secondary schools, order dissenting voices have started to emerge on this matter.

One such is a concern being raised by the Buhweju Woman Member of Parliament Hon Olive Koyekyenga; who fears that the move could further harm the already endangered social-cultural fabric of the country.

According to reports, capsule government has already selected a number of schools to pioneer the teaching of the Chinese language and teachers are set to be imported.

During a fundraising function in Mbarara on the weekend, MP Koyekyenga urged parents in the western region to reject the teaching of the Chinese language in their schools and emphasize the teaching of local languages and cultures.

Because of government’s “encouragement of foreign cultures and behavior’ the MP says Ugandan children have been exposed like never before to dangerous practices such as drugs.

Meanwhile, at the event to fundraise for the construction of a girls’ dormitory at St. Paul H/S Biharwe, Hon. Koyekyenga also urged parents to give the first priority to girl child education.
