The First Lady and Minister of Education and Sports Janet Museveni has posted on facebook an interview she had with NTV, in which she reacts to recent criticism by fiery Makerere University researcher Dr Stella Nyanzi.
Dr Nyanzi has criticized the First Lady, for what she claims, is her failure to push government to implement a campaign promise to provide sanitary pads to school going children.
Dr Nyanzi stepped up her criticism on social media after this week’s interview in which, the First Lady speaking as Education Minister, criticized the long hours children spend at primary school and their transportation to school.
She particularly criticized the practice of sending children to school unaccompanied on boda bodas (motor cycles).
“I have received reports about Dr Stella Nyanzi insulting me. I don’t know what wrong I committed to deserve that kind of language and abuse. However, I want to tell Ugandans that I forgive her,” Janet Museveni told NTV.
