Uganda National Examinations Board (Uneb) has apprehended Lilian Ayebazibwe, the headteacher of Bubaale primary school in Bushenyi, and handed her over to the police for allegedly issuing her former primary leaving examinations (PLE) candidates with false results. 

Ayebazibwe appeared for a hearing at Uneb offices over suspected malpractice, resulting in the withholding of exam results for 114 candidates.

Uneb spokesperson Jennifer Kalule revealed that during the hearing, it was discovered that the school administrators provided fake results to candidates in form of testimonials forms. Kalule mentioned that Uneb learned that all 114 affected candidates used these testimonials with inaccurate results to enrol in senior one. 

"We are still gathering more information on this case," Kalule stated in a telephone interview. 

Despite releasing PLE results on January 25, Uneb did not disclose the number of suspected malpractice cases or the involved schools. At the time, Uneb executive director Dan Odongo defended the decision, citing potential harm to innocent schools from premature announcements.
