On Tuesday November 8th 2022, a total of 23 candidates from St Christine Rwamadongo Primary School in Mpasana sub county, Kakumiro District, were late for the final mathematics examination and hence missed it.

According to UNEB Principal Public Relations Officer Jennifer Kalule Musamba, the candidates arrived 1 hour and 16 minutes, after the commencement of the mathematics examination, essentially making them late for the paper, and were therefore not allowed to sit the paper.

The Ministers’ interventions comes as a relief to the parents of the candidates.
