The Ministry of Education has Monday August 1st announced a ban on all “indecent” music performances in schools.
The ban, which takes immediate effect is to be implemented in both government and private primary and secondary schools.
This is contained in a circular which was sent out today to all school Head Teachers and Principals by Dr Jane Okou on behalf of the Ministry Permanent Secretary.
Dr Okou cited recent images which appeared in the media showing an explicit music performance at one of the schools in Kampala.
“It is also now clear that there have been several of these totally unacceptable and offensive functions allowed in schools in the name of extracurricular and entertainment activities” she said.
