Teachers flee during class-time to escape debt collectors

05 June 2015, 22:05 Godfrey Olukya

Kampala - Teachers of Nawango Primary School in eastern Uganda's district of Luuka Friday morning fled from their classrooms and ran away after getting heed that debt collectors had arrived to arrest them to the bemusement of their students.

The students shouted in excitement on seeing their teachers running away as fast as their legs could take them.

" The creditors came to the school with policemen with intention of arresting the teachers who got credit from a savings and credit organisation but have failed to honour payment. When the teachers saw them, they fled," said the school headteacher Stecia Namwaga.

She said that eight of the ten teachers on her staff had got loans but failed to pay back. The two teachers who had no debts did not take off.

Namwaga added that she has always been advising the teachers against getting loans which they can not pay back in time but they have failed to heed to her advice.

" I was happy when I saw a teacher Mr Isabirye falling down as he escaped from being arrested. He is rude and canes us over small issues, " said primary 6 pupil, Nabillah Kyabwe.

According to education administrators in the district, teachers are no longer performing their duties adequately due to the loans they acquire in order to supplement their inadequate salaries.
