The Indian community in Uganda has paid school fees for the 15 students who were stopped from sitting for their Ugandan Advanced Certificate of Education examinations by the school management. There were tears at Iganda Top Care Secondary School in Iganga Municipality on Monday when 15 senior six candidates were stopped from sitting for the UACE exams over uncleared fees balances. However, the Indian community in Uganda has announced that they have paid school fees for all the 15 candidates. “We have already paid the money. The money has been sent to the school. We have paid for 16 students,”Sanjiv Patel, the Indian Association spokesperson told the Nile Post on Tuesday afternoon. “It is everybody’s responsibility to see no Ugandan loses his or her opportunity when it is not his or her fault. If the parents have made a mistake, it should not be the child to suffer.” The Indian community spokesperson said because Ugandans are known to be charitable people around the country, this is should be a lesson to always help those in need.
