Sheema: The chairman of all headteachers in Sheema district Zebedde Mwijukye has warned all teachers and headteachers who are tired of teaching to quit the profession and do other things.
Mwijukye, who revealed this during an interview with our reporter said that “Every year my colleagues demonstrate over salary increment; the government takes its responsibility to increase our salaries but I keep wondering when I see some teachers doing Volongoto in the field of teaching. I therefore tell you that if you’re tired of teaching, please step down as soon as possible, pack your things and you go for other businesses, we can’t tolerate you anymore.”
He added that “There are so many people who studied education with the best professional skills but don’t have jobs and are on streets looking for where to teach. Therefore, instead of behaving unethically, just go away and create space for others.”
He also warned teachers who are sexually abusing students that once they caught, they will be exposed for the public to know them.
“I don’t think that a teacher who involves him or herself in sex with a pupil or student is normal. A person with 5 senses can’t do such a stupid thing; how can you milk a calf? Women are many if you can’t control yourself, look for mature ladies. I as Zebedde, if a teacher is caught in that act, I write a heavy report about you and pray that they terminate your services once and for all plus jailing you for over 35 years,” he said.
He also blamed head teachers, saying they are the ones who abetted immoral behaviors in teachers because of hiding their unethical acts.
