Poor access to water points and a weak sanitation infrastructure, is pushing Makobore High school in Rukungiri district into a fix and chances are high that the students could be asked to go home.
Dr. Edison Mutahigwa, the district health officer, says the absence of water at the school is putting the lives of students at risk.
Students are finding it increasingly difficult to get water for bathing and personal hygiene.
Mutahingwa warns that the school operating in dilapidated structures could be closed down.
//Cue in:”if they continue in this…
Cue out: ….the children are safe. //
Kapasi Godfrey, the school’s headmaster says the water system broke down and efforts to fix it have been thwarted by funding limits.
//Cue in:”As for the school….
Cue out: …national water not on board.//
Kapasi says have been fetching water from the water wells and this too has disrupted the school routine.
Makobore High School was established by the church of Uganda in 1964.
