The Kajara County Member of Parliament Timuzigu Michael Kamugisha has called upon government and stakeholders to tighten the belts of advocating for the boy-child education alongside girls’ education if the country is to develop at the same pace.
Timuzigu noted that government had put much emphasis on girls only left behind boys which has accelerated wrong elements among the boy children.
According to Timuzigu since the Ugandans have embraced the girl education it is time for them to switch to the education of boys to fill the gap which has been widened for so long.
“Some boy children have resorted drug abuse, petty jobs and dropped from schools because their parents and government ventured into girls only, he said.
He made the remarks on Sunday as chief guest at St Peters Day service for Kabumba C.O.U in Nyabihoko sub county Kajara County Ntungamo district.
