What you need to know:

  • The school’s closure comes nearly a decade after government had invested a colossal sum of money on constructing and repairing classroom blocks, procuring scholastic materials and recruiting new teaching staff.
  • Mr Kenneth Nyebaza, a former pupil at Gomero Primary School between 2002 and 2006, explained  that all efforts to save the school from closure by government by a handful of parents hit a dead end in February 2020 when the school academic year opened with a total enrollment of only six pupils.

Monkeys, snakes, rats and other wild creatures have taken over what used to be Gomero Primary School in Nakaseke District.
