Teachers attached to private schools in Mbarara district are struggling to repay bank loans that they acquired before the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.




Since the president ordered the closure of schools on 18th March 2020 as a measure to fight the spread of the COVID-19, some teachers in private schools have not gone back to work.

Moses Buregyeya, the Secretary-General of the Mbarara City Private Teachers Association says majority of the private teachers who had acquired soft loans to engage in small businesses to supplement their salaries have failed to repay.

He says the 20 billion shillings’ relief the president promised the private teachers in June last year has not been released 17 months later despite the hard times they are going through.
