Yoram Banyenzaki, former Makerere University Business School [MUBS] Guild President (2014/2015) has come out to respond to Allan Kasujja’s disagreement with St Mary’s SS Kitende UCE results.
On Wednesday, this website reported about the BBC anchor disputing SMASK’s UCE results where 430 students scored division one and two in division two.
“But are these exams set in Kitende??? 430 in Div 1 and 2 Div 2. I’m sorry! Nanyanga!” Allan Kasujja tweeted.
Banyenzaki, in a Facebook post, has asked the veteran journalist to “get serious.” Below is his response.
“On January 31, 2017 the minister of education officially released the UCE results with a report indicating a decline in the general performance, this is not what I intend to focus on but I wish to express my disappointment in the ongoing social media discussions on the same. Unique of all is the scenario of St. Mary’s SS that almost got 100% of the students passing with first grade and that of Zombo district where no student managed to get a single first grade.
As a result of this scenario, I was irked by the comments regarding this matter but I wish to respond to veteran journalist Allan Kasujja where he questions whether these exams were set from St. Mary’s; of course not.
Mr. Allan Kasujja, I expected you to focus more on the Zombo case but to my disappointment it wasn’t the case, actually I have seen so many of your followers in affirmative of your concern but I would expect you to dig deep into the Zombo case because it requires more attention than what you decided to focus on.
As a journalist, it was less expected of you to express pedestrian concerns on issues of national importance. However, moving forward something ought to be done to rescue the situation.”
