Oct 18, 2023

GITEGA October 17th (ABP) – The Director General of Territorial Administration, Civic Education and Local Communities, at the Ministry in charge of the Interior, Community Development and Public Security, Mr. Valentin Nahimana, a native of the Mubuga zone, enhanced with his presence, Saturday October 14, 2023, in Mubuga, in Gitega commune and province (center of the country), the ceremonies marking the opening of the bronze jubilee year of the Mubuga communal high school.

That day was coupled with the presentation of certificates to the winners of the 2022-2023 school year.

On this occasion, the director of the Mubuga communal high school, Mr. Siniremera Déo, said that this school was created in 1999 with 15 pupils and was, at that time, a communal college. He pointed out that in 2011, that school was transformed into a municipal high school with a science section B. Since its creation, it has already welcomed 3,000 pupils, he said. Mr. Siniremera indicated that among these, 859  pupils had the common core certificate while 349 had diplomas or certificates. He pointed out that since its creation; this school has experienced several major difficulties including the glaring lack of qualified teachers, teaching tools and latrines, which led, according to him, to a great failure in national tests and state exams.

Mr. Siniremera called on those involved in the field of education in Mubuga, to come together with the school management and the natives, to see together the strategies to be put in place to improve the results in the State exams.

Mr. Valentin Nahimana, for his part, indicated that this school has never achieved its objectives, because, he said, the level of students in that school still remains very low if we refer to the statistics. He called on the directors of different establishments to combine efforts to improve results and to ensure good supervision of learners and teachers. Mr. Nahimana further pointed out that there are directors who do not supervise teachers. He also criticized the behavior of teachers who miss work as they please. He called on them to abandon this behavior and asked directors to sanction those who do not work properly, without taking into account their friendship or political and/or ethnic affiliation, in order to achieve the set objectives.

He further asked parents to look into the education of their children, deploring that the dropout rate nationally remains very high. Furthermore, the administration has been called upon to raise awareness, so that there are no children of school age who do not go to school.
