Parents Storm PMM school in Jinja over lesbian teacher
Hundreds of parents with children at PMM Girls’ School in Jinja City on Friday stormed the school, protesting against the alleged existence of a teacher promoting homsexuality.
The angry parents, who were blocked from entering the school, were demanding for the release of their children in school dormitories after several social media reports accused the teacher of spoiling their daughters.
one of the parents, said she brought her daughter to the school to acquire knowledge not to engage in lesbianism.The parents say their daughters are being given Shs100,000 so as to promote lesbianism among fellows.
Ms Rose Kalembe, a social worker and a former student of the school, said the teacher should be suspended from school because she is “tarnishing its image”.
“I was here in the 1990s and had never heard of lesbian issues in this school. The suspected teacher was also a student in this school, and as Old Girls, we have to do something,’’ she said.
Ms fazia Said,“The City Education Officer (Haruna Mulopa) should work with the District Service Commission to retire the alleged teacher; but I also appeal to parents to be calm as authorities find a solution amidst investigations.’’
Ms Kawuma added the deputy mayor, who rushed to the school for intervention, said the leadership of Jinja City condemns acts of homosexuality and lesbianism, and appealed for zero tolerance towards the vice..
