Uganda’s Daily Monitor reported that the primary seven pupils numbering 20 ganged up on their headteacher, who also teaches Social Studies in the school. They reportedly invaded his office on Monday afternoon.

The pupils accused Kinyera of not compiling their test results on time.

Mr Kinyera, who sustained injuries to his head and lower body was rescued by teachers and local leaders, who rushed him to a nearby health centre for medical treatment.

The pupils after beating him also locked up his office, accusing him of incompetence, drinking alcohol during school hours and handing over food contributed by parents under the school feeding programme to teachers.

Mr Kinyera, however, denied all the allegations against him when contacted.

Instead, he said the pupils exhibited signs of indiscipline and promised to punish them for their actions.

Mr Walter Tootika, the Gulu District deputy speaker, who visited the school hours after the attack, said he received a complaint of misconduct against the head teacher from a section of local leaders and parents.

Mr Tootika said the school head teacher will be subjected to an investigation and later punished for breaching the teachers’ code of conduct.

The Gulu District education officer-in-charge of administration, Mr Aldo Otto Okot, said they have received complaints against the head teacher, which they are investigating.
