A total of 1,000 teachers from different schools and institutions in the country have camped at Sir Samuel Baker Senior Secondary School and Laroo Boarding School in Gulu district for two weeks of National patriotism training.
The Deputy Head of the National Patriotism Clubs in Uganda Mr Paul Odauk, said that they have decided to target teachers and head teachers so that they can be the initiators of patriotism and love for the country I their respective schools.
He said that Uganda’s “bad history” was due to due to lack of love for one another and love for the country.
“We hope that we shall consolidate peace and unity among the communities,” he said.
The Member of Parliament for Nwoya County, Nwoya District and recently appointed Minsiter without Potfolio in charge of Political Mobilisation Hon Richard Towdong who presented a paper on post conflict management in the north noted that collective responsibility is needed if we are to build and sustain a viable nation.
“There is need to change attitudes in our daily conflict resolution and how to protect our country. If you use abusive language to take charge of something then it means that we have not learnt from the past,” he said.
“Gulu camp” is the third training session since the launch of the patriotism club in 2009. 34,000 schools and institutions in Uganda are targeted. By A Web design Company
