Commissioner Mugumya Rebukes Kabale Officials for Neglecting Physical Education Promotion

KABALE – The Commissioner for Physical Education and Sports in the Ministry of Education and Sports, Rev. Canon Dr. Dancuns Mugumya has expressed his disappointment with Kabale District and Municipality Officials for their lack of participation in promoting physical education and sports.

Rev. Canon Dr. Mugumya raised this concern this evening during the official launch of the 21st Edition of the National Health Training Institution Sports Championship at Kabale Main Stadium in Kabale Municipality. This year’s national championship sports event is being hosted by the Kabale School of Comprehensive Nursing.

During his address, Rev. Canon Dr. Mugumya noted that, since his arrival in the district, he has not witnessed the active involvement of any education officers from both the district and municipality, except for the principals and sports tutors. He argued that this lack of participation substantiates the claims made by the State Minister of Sports, Peter Ogwang, during his recent visit to the district, where he identified education officers as hindrances to the promotion of physical education and sports.

Rev. Canon Dr. Mugumya emphasized that while the Ministry is dedicated to implementing physical education and sports programs, it is imperative for government civil servants to play a significant role in this process. He highlighted the numerous benefits of physical education and sports, such as fostering good health, enhancing student performance, and combating non-communicable diseases.


Josephine Nambiro Kigozi, the Principal of Kabale School of Comprehensive Nursing, underlined the importance of physical education and sports in nurturing students’ talents. She urged participants to not only focus on physical education but also strive for academic excellence.


The chief guest at the official launch of the games was the Kabale Resident District Commissioner, Godfrey Nyakahuma.
