More than 15,000 candidates have sat the 2022 Primary Leaving Examination from the two districts of Mubende and Kassanda under strict observation of the lockdown guidelines set to mitigate the spread of the Ebola virus.

As part of the campaign to ensure the movement to and from the respective exam centres, the United Nations International Children’s Emergency Fund (Unicef) has dispatched 35 vans to ease the movement of PLE candidates to their respective examination centres.

Mr Asaph Kabuunga, the Mubende District Education Officer, said 20 vans have been allocated to them to facilitate the candidates’ movement.

Mr Kabuunga said they have 5,155 PLE candidates sitting their respective exams at 105 centres.

Ms Rosemary Byabashaija, the Mubende Resident District Commissioner and chairperson of the Mubende Ebola taskforce, said the Unicef vans are a big relief to the candidates, parents and school authorities.
