Police have charged two Lubiri High School teachers with offences related to negligence over the recent video in which their students were seen dancing in an indecent manner in a Midland High School bus.
In a video clip that went viral on social media last month, the students both boys and girls were captured on a bus belonging to Midland High School in Kawempe involved in what appears to be public sexual acts that left many people wondering whether they were simulated or actual.
Fred Enanga, the Police Spokesperson in his statement over the investigations, says that they have established that there wasn’t enough supervision done by teachers who were aboard the bus on the fateful day.
He adds that aboard the bus were 73 students, a number which was more than the sitting capacity of 67, noting that it was wrong to assign only two teachers to supervise such a big number.
Enanga discloses the identities of the two teachers as Joseph Nsubuga and Lydia Nabakka both charged with neglect to prevent a felony, contrary to section 389 of the Penal Code.
However, police have recommended to Lubiri High School administration to suspend all the students who participated in the incident dance and those who filmed the act on the school bus to serve as an example to others.
