WORLD BANK BLAMED FOR FAILURE TO MONITOR UTILISATION OF LOAN TO UGANDA

KAMPALA, The World Bank has been blamed for failing to monitor the utilization of a 540 billion shillings (about 150 million US dollars) project loan it granted the Government of Uganda to improve teaching of science in secondary schools.

An independent internal audit of the project has rated the performance of the Ugandan Government and the World Bank on this project as moderately unsatisfactory.

This was the same opinion expressed by the government in its own internal assessment of the project.

An earlier survey had discovered that thousands of schools around the country are stuck with stockpiles of expired chemicals, delivered by the Education Ministry a couple of years ago. In certain instances, schools received chemicals for use in science laboratories which had not been labelled.
