20 Young Girls Burn In School Fire

Now this one is guaranteed to make you cry. Twenty (20) young girls getting burnt in a dormitry at school is not something we hear of every day but alas, a school just in the nearby towns to Kampala called Budo junior school had one of its dormitries go up in flames with the result that 20 girls between the ages of 8-9 years lost their lives.

Whats more? two bodies of male adults were also found in the wreckledge of a girls' dormitry.Police is promising thourogh investigations but from my experience with Uganda, all this will be forgotten in acouple of weeks save of course for the families that lost their dear angels

I am lost of words but only God can judge the living and the dead and may the souls of those little angels rest in enternal peace.

By the way did I tell you that families can not bury their dead because they have burnt beyond recornition and we have to wait for DNA results? The only right now is the politics that has been going on in the school with the changing of the administration. By the way the new school head is just one month old there and it is said the old head tried to resist being transfered and even mobilised strikes against the change.

Just watch this space for more on this sad development.
