The Police has issued guidelines ahead of the just commenced Uganda Certificate of Education (UCE) examinations.
During Monday’s weekly press briefing, Force’s spokesperson AIGP Asan Kasingye said the force is responsible for ensuring law and order in a bid to enhance what he described a conducive environment.
“We are responsible for ensuring law and order in areas of our responsibility. This is to enable exams be carried out in a conducive environment” Kasingye said.
He added, “Police will ensure safe retrieval of exam scripts to the collection points. We have instructed all units to handle and or report cases related to exam malpractice and other forms of irregularities. All schools, candidates and parents are cautioned against falling prey to conmen who will be hawking or selling fake papers around this time, some of which may be through social media platforms such as WhatsApp”
Kasingye also appealed students with registration issues with UNEB to file complaints at Police Stations instead of taking the law into their own hands adding, “all head teachers who misappropriated students exam fees will obviously be apprehended and prosecuted. The Police will work hand in hand with UNEB to secure O and A level exams”
To this therefore, Kasingye gave out contacts,. 0414 289397, 0414 286636, 0702 471766, 0772471766 and 0772625154 so as to give information on any malpractice related issues to Police.
