National |MPs ask Mbabazi to resign over strike

Daily Monitor: "Confusion marked yesterday’s opening of public schools for the crucial last term after some teachers reported for duty even as their colleagues across the country refused to call off the strike over a salary dispute.

Uncertainty over how schools will function continued with MPs demanding the resignation of Prime Minister Amama Mbabazi over a seven-day ultimatum he issued to teachers on Sunday. The PM, who warned that teachers who fail to report for duty will be replaced, was criticised for aggravating a situation that now affects the future of thousands of pupils and students."
