FDC had massive campaigns in Tororo, while travelling with the successive rallies in the area. They had a stop at schools and looked at the situation the NRM-Regime has kept. This here is one of the schools in the area. The police did not stop this visit because they we’re situated at some referal hospital in Tororo.
That is Paya primary school in Tororo District, Eastern Uganda. It was built in 1971 by Amin-government but it has collapsed in NRM-Regime.“If Mr Museveni was talking about a UPE where, in a Kisoko school, teachers cannot ‘bend’ because of being surrounded by 150 children in a class; that is not what UPC was talking about in 1962. In Paya Primary School where Museveni was a couple of years ago – built in 1960s; the roofs are off and the latrines flow; that was not UPC’s idea in 1962” (Ochieno, 2013).

Dr. Kizza Besigye message after the rallies:
“Thank you Tororo for welcoming us and coming in big numbers today we come to the end of our third leg of the Eastern campaign trail and we will be in Wakiso, Buganda tomorrow”.
That’s enough for today. Peace.
BTW, interesting site review of the school in 2011:

There supposed to been Parent-Teachers Meeting in the recent 4 months when the check-up from the government. There was reported to be situated with latrines for both genders, and that there was a safe water-source at the school.
