Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB) has accepted court’s order to pay shs600 million to three schools whose results were canceled seven years ago.

UNEB official said “Some schools sued UNEB for canceling their results some time back. We lost and appealed but have lost again. We are not going to keep in this because it involves paying a lot of money to our lawyers”

He added, “We have decided to pay the schools although we don’t have it (the compensation money) now but we want this to get out of our way”

Documents submitted to court indicated that UNEB withheld candidates’ results over examination malpractice and failed to invite the affected pupils to defend themselves.
