The ministry of education and sports has banned artists from performing in schools under the guise of co-curricular and entertainment.
A circular released by the ministry of Education follows viral videos of singer Sheebah performing at a school in an indecent manner.
The Minister of Education Janet Kataha Museveni says if schools need to entertain children, it can be through debate clubs, games and sports, acting plays and concerts.
"All Head teachers and principles are cautioned not to hire or allow any of these singers to perform in schools and failure to comply will lead to school managers being personally held responsible and disciplinary measures charged against them". The Minister is quoted in the circular.
She emphasizes that the ministry of education and sports was issuing the ban as the custodian of values and behaviors of all Ugandan children in both government and private schools.
