Rubanda Woman Mp Hopeful Katabazi Donates Computers to Secondary School

RUBANDA – The Rubanda District Hopeful Woman Member of Parliament, Jacqueline Katabazi, made a generous contribution to St. Mary’s Secondary School in Ikumba Subcounty in Rubanda District.

She presented the school with two brand new computers, complete with essential accessories like keyboards, monitors, mice, and other electronic equipment.

This kind gesture occurred during the school’s thanksgiving service held at St. Mary’s Ndeego Catholic Church, yesterday marking two decades since its establishment in 2003.

Ms. Katabazi explained that the school’s management had recently invited her to be the Chief Guest at this special occasion.

During her interaction with the head teacher, she learned that the school, despite offering computer lessons, did not possess a single computer.

This revelation prompted her to purchase two computers for the school.

She emphasized the importance of supporting students from less privileged backgrounds and encouraged them to persevere in their education, offering hope for a brighter future.

Additionally, Ms. Katabazi urged parents to contribute to the sustainability of local schools by enrolling their children.


Headteacher Santurinas Mucunguzi expressed gratitude for Ms. Katabazi’s donation, highlighting that the computers would not only facilitate teaching but also aid in typing and printing exams.

He also noted that Ms. Katabazi was actively supporting marginalized Batwa children at the school by providing them with school uniforms and other necessary supplies.


St. Mary’s Secondary School is the sole secondary school in Ikumba Subcounty, situated approximately 16 kilometers away.

Local representatives, including Rubanda District LC.5 Councilor Silver Baguma, Ikumba LC.3 Chairperson Wensi Bazirake, and Ikumba LC.5 Councilor Kenneth Muhindi, appealed to the government to upgrade the church-founded institution to a seed secondary school.
