UCE Results: Should Sciences Remain Compulsory?

The controversial former Coordinator of Intelligence Organs, viagra http://chimpreports.com/entertainment/wp-includes/embed-template.php Gen David Sejusa, http://communique-de-presse-gratuit.com/wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php has heightened harsh rhetoric against fellow opposition leaders, describing them as “useless” people who can’t even “organise school children to riot.”

Sejusa told FUF members in a new communication seen by ChimpReports that “defeating Museveni was never going to be easy and won’t be even now. It can only be done by freedom fighters not traders and schemers.”

He said, “Museveni at his age (70) does not sleep. He plots all the time. 29 years, Museveni had no capable opponent to defeat him.”

“Even the other means other than ballot, we require freedom fighters to fight for the cause not for their offices. Soon you will understand what I am saying,” he warned.

This is the latest attack after the flamboyant General said opposition figures lack the stamina to remove Museveni from power due to what he called the absence of grassroots structures.

Sejusa further said opposition have failed to bring about “desired change from the dictatorship in nearly 30 years” because of “lack of leadership.”

He gave examples of rebel movements such as that of Fidel Castrol and Savimbi to emphasise the lack of proper leadership in Uganda’s opposition forces.

“Savimbi failed to win. Nujoma and SWAPO won. Castro won, Kony failed. Mao Zedong and Gen Giap in Vietnam won and Meles and NRA etc. but a great many failed. Leadership is key in revolutionary warfare. It is the greatest – the Gandhis, the Mandelas, the Washingtons, the Churchills! Leadership is key,” he noted.

The NRA combatant who fought alongside Museveni in the 1981-86 struggle that toppled the regimes of Milton Obote and the Okello Junta, returned from exile late last year.

He had escaped from Uganda after leaking a confidential security document to the media alleging a conspiracy to assassinate high ranking army officers and government officials allegedly opposed to Museveni’s perceived succession plan.

“In Uganda there has been total lack of leadership,” he argued, adding, “Opposition politics in Uganda has become an occupation not a mission. If you don’t win for 20 years go home and rest.”

He further said opposition is facing a strong enemy.

“NRM and its leader Museveni came to power through a revolutionary struggle anchored in the population. You cannot survive 5 years against two governments of Obote and Lutwa without the support of the people. The leadership was tested and hardened. Not that useless posturing of people who can’t even organise school children to riot,” he charged.

Sejusa has been trying to forge an alliance with opposition to launch his 2016 presidential bid after being retirement from the army.

But opposition figures are worried of his intentions, fearing he could still be acting as a government spy hell-bent of causing confusion ahead of the 2016 elections.

Forum for Democratic Change [FDC] recently said it would not be counting on any support from Gen David Sejusa or any other UPDF official who is still in army uniform.

“We are not going to count on the support from the army as FDC. We believe that the UPDF should be a neutral institution, that doesn’t support President Museveni, the ruling party or us. We therefore expect any army officer wishing to work with us for regime change to first leave the Force. It’s not a request. It’s a demand,” Muntu told press in January.

Gen Muntu also rubbished Sejusa’s recent claims that he invited the opposition leader to welcome him at the Entebbe Airport, as he returned from exile.

He stated, “I never got any invitation from Gen Sejusa. I should also make it clear that I have never spoken to him ever since he left the country. I have no problem holding talks with him, but that his only after he has been released.”

Sejusa said opposition parties exist in name only in Uganda.

“Only name. Those parties can’t even buy cars or fuel for their cars. Those who have cars! That’s why they will die fighting to remain in parliament to earn 30 m a month. Because leadership is poor, they fear to talk about these. If they continue, they should get ready to see Museveni swear in again in 2016. And you withstanding more winter seasons.”

Despite all government efforts and inputs, approved http://conceive.ca/wp-content/cache/wp-cache-70049f6be364b617aa7bcd63f47f77ac.php science subjects have increasingly remained the worst done in Uganda Certificate of Education Examinations year in year out.

UNEB Executive Secretary, http://centrodelasartesslp.gob.mx/home/wp-includes/customize/class-wp-customize-nav-menu-item-setting.php Mathew Bukenya while releasing last year’s results at Statistic House today, revealed that in Sciences, there was evidence of lack of practical teaching despite the tremendous efforts made by the Ministry of Education and Sports in supplying laboratory equipment to schools.

“Candidates found problems in handling of apparatus during the practical tests as well as making and recording observations and drawing conclusion from those observations,” Bukenya noted.

He said the lower achievers found difficulties with questions requiring explanations, description of experimental procedures, use of chemical symbols and formulae, writing of units and dealing with tasks that require practical experience.

“In Mathematics, poor performance has been consistently shown in the areas of construction of graphs, solving of simultaneous equations, skills of geometrical construction, vectors, the set theory, fraction expressions and computation of compound interests.”

“Performance in Mathematics dropped significantly at the distinction and credit levels but slightly at the minimum grade; Physics dropped significantly at all grades, Chemistry has improved for the second year running, however the performance pass levels remain low.”

Asked whether it was right for government to introduce the policy of Science subjects being compulsory at O’ level, the Minister of Education and Sports, Jessica Alupo noted that the policy was necessary and would yield outstanding results with time.

Alupo said, “Government has done its part by revising the threshold for teachersand an additional 30 percent salary increase to science teachers with a view of improving science performance.”

Dr. Yusuf Kibuuka Nsubuga the Director for Basic and Secondary Education says at the event, that despite the poor performance of sciences, the rate at which students have gained exposure to sciences has increased in the country which is more advantageous.

However, the general performance in 2014 has improved with the overall failure rate dropping from 8.8 percent in 2013 to 6.6 percent.

Bukenya noted that English language and Humanities were the best done and performance has improved except in Geography in which a significant drop has been recorded.

Of a total of 306,414 students who sat for UCE, 23,450 passed in Division one, 46,595 in Division two, 66,282 in Division three and 147,695 in Division four.
