The member of parliament for Labwor county in Abim district, Micheal Ayepa, has tasked the Uganda national examinations board executive secretary Dan Odongo to release the primary leaving results of her daughter.
Ayepa made the demand as the executive secretary was appearing before the parliamentary education committee of parliament chaired by Mbale woman MP, Connie Nakayenze Galiwango, to defend of the board.
Ayepa said that her child is innocent and should not be punished for the incompetence of the board that failed to hire trusted people that could manage exams and saying that he wants his daughter’s results released as ‘she has suffered enough.’
Ayepa further revealed that the girl was meant to sit for the exams three years ago but due to an accident he chose to keep her at home as she recovered and when she finally sat for the exams UNEB decided to withhold them.
The executive secretary Dan Odongo said that the results were with held after three different committees confirmed that the students could have engaged in activities of cheating.
Odongo revealed that the pupils were found to have answered the questions in the same way and failed the same questions in the same manner which is questionable.
