Artistes banned from performing in schools

The Ministry of Education and sports has put a temporary ban on hosting of performing artistes on premises of public or private Primary and Secondary Schools until guidelines have been put in place.

According to a document from the Ministry of Education and sports, all head teachers and Principals in government and private secondary and primary schools have been instructed to ban performances from artistes from school grounds.

“Head teachers and Principals of both Primary and Secondary Schools are cautioned not to hire or allow any of these “artists” to perform in schools. Failure to comply, will lead to school managers being personally held responsible and disciplinary measures charged against them,” reads part of the document.

The ministry further noted in the document that extracurricular activities in school normally mean sports and games, debate clubs etc and if schools need to entertain themselves, then they can engage in acting plays or arrange concerts. However inviting singers who dance erotic dances, go naked to the schools in the guise of extracurricular activities must be forbidden hence forth.

This was after a video went viral of students in a school bus believed to be involved in sensual dances on July 11, 2022. On July 14, 2022, the Tororo Woman MP Hon Sarah Acheing Opendi revealed to the Ugandan Parliament that the rate at which musicians are spreading indecency in schools is alarming and therefore called for the banning of secular musicians from performing in schools.

Musician Sheeba Karungi came out and replied to the minister

saying that musicians are not in any way responsible for misleading and promoting the growth of immorality among young kids, claiming that the job of raising and guiding kids falls back to their parents .

“I tell parents, I am not going to raise your children. They are your responsibility, so stop blaming me for their immorality,” Sheebah said.
