UGANDA, Kampala. The Ugandan Government is planning to use $1 million (U.S.) to buy 10 million radios and 140,000 television to be distributed in villages. This project will enable students to continue with their studies while at home following the closure of schools due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to analysts, this program has been activated with the coming general elections. This comes a few days after Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni referred to all educational institutions as dry grass before COVID-19 fire, and the only solution for education is technology.

Long distance learning. Museveni supports long-distance learning as many students will benefit and fewer teachers are needed. It’s now 3 months since schools have been closed and almost 15 million students have been affected due to the closures.
