As a result, therefore, the government has tasked parents and guardians to support learners with Radio sets and to also allow them time to Tune in to Various Radio stations in order to attend the lessons.

BUT, it should be remembered that in July 2020, during the first pandemic lockdown to curb the spread of coronavirus disease, President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni promised that the government would procure and distribute 10 million radio sets to households countrywide.

The lockdown had led to the closure of all educational institutions of learning right from Kindergartens, Primary and Secondary Schools including Universities and Tertiary Institutions which interrupted normal classes for 1.5 million learners.

On June 18 when Museveni re-imposed the second lockdown, the Ministry of Education revived the radio lessons to be conducted on 15 selected radio stations across the country, this time targeting Primary 3 and 4 classes without fulfilling the promise something that left Ugandans wondering about what they called ”Museveni’s broad day lies”.

According to the Ministry of Education and the Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, the procurement of the 10 million radio sets would require Shillings 336.8 billion but till today nothing has ever been fulfilled other than releasing timetables as seen in the link below;
