With the disruption caused by COVID-19, teaching is one of the professions that took a hit. It even gets harder for the private school teachers who are not earning salary as schools have been closed since March.

Emily Tumuheki, a private school teacher in Masaka, is one of the many teachers who have gone without pay since the closure of schools as a way of preventing the spread of the deadly Covid19.

Tumuheki, a resident of Nyendo town in Masaka district and a teacher of English at Kitendesa Modern Primary School reaped big from the on-going MoMoNyabo Together promotion as she won herself a whopping 5,000,000 Uganda shillings. The teacher could not believe her luck the moment she learnt that she had been chosen as a lucky winner in the MoMo Nyabo Together promotion.

When the hosts of the MoMo Nyabo Together show Zahara Totto and Patricko Mujuuka first contacted Tumuheki, she was in shock she decided to hand the phone to a friend of hers thinking she was getting conned. She however was able to compose herself and answer all five questions correctly.

While shedding tears of joy at her cheque handover, Tumuheki narrated how life had been so hard seeing as she was not earning and yet her bills kept on accumulating.

Tumuheki who hails from Ntungamo moved to Nyendo in search of greener pastures.

Currently, she is also pursuing a Bachelors degree in Secondary Education to grow her career.

The happy teacher was overwhelmed with the fact that she had indeed become a millionaire.

“I cannot imagine this real. This money will help me a lot. I plan on starting a shop where I can trade in food items like rice, sugar, salt and many others consumer goods.” Tumuheki said.

Tumuheki went on to add that because of COVID-19, she had resorted to quitting her job and starting something else but she did not have the capital to start her dream business.

“My life has drastically changed for the better,” said an excited Tumuheki in praise of the MTN MoMoNyabo promotion.

She named her mother, Frank Twikirize as her beneficiary. Twikirize was excited when her daughter called to ask if she had received 2,000,000 Uganda shillings that was sent to her phone. An excited Twikirize asked her daughter to thank MTN for remembering them.

“For one to get money in such times, it can only be by the grace of God,” Tumuheki said.

While handing over a dummy cheque, the Regional Manager Central Ssempuuma Jimmy congratulated Tumuheki Emilly upon her win. He also encouraged all MTN customers to continue using the MTN MoMo service, “You too can win like Tumuheki,” he said.

Tumuheki said she always used her MTN MoMo to buy airtime, minutes to make phone calls as well as data to surf the internet and social media. She thanked MTN for availing Ugandans with a chance to win money this year.

Apart from the winners called in studio, 250 people win 50,000 shillings directly every day. All you have to do is pay for airtime, bundles or any bill using MTN MoMo on the MyMTN app or dial *165# and stand a chance to win.

CSO’s Accuse Government

Civil society organizations-CSO’s dealing in Human rights and governance issues have accused the government of shrinking their space for operations and operating outside the confines of the law.

The CSO’s argue that the government has been so critical of NGOs doing governance work like constitutionalism and human rights and has blocked deliberately blocked their operations.

Last year, the government banned the activities of NEW-U, an election observers’ loose coalition of more than 50 NGOs for allegedly operating illegally.

The bank accounts of the National NGO Forum, a membership organization with over 650 organizations, and Uganda Women’s Network (UWONET), an entity that brings together 20 Women’s Rights Organizations and nine individual activists were also frozen for allegedly engaging in money laundering and funding subversive activities.

The Executive Director of Center for Constitutional Sarah Bireete says they have held several meetings with the authorities but the government continues to shrink the civic space.

CSO’s Accuse Government

Bireete says the government is comfortable with Civil Society Organizations that focus on service delivery like poverty alleviation programs and extending safe water to the communities but are hostile to CSOs focused on accountability, governance, and democracy. 

Bireete says that the government needs to act under the law when dealing with the activities of CSOs.

She was speaking at the launch of a book titled, Uganda’s Civil Society.

However, Minister for Internal Affairs Jeje Odongo who attended the same launch says that the level of suspicion between civil society organizations and the NGO Board is high which has led to the closure of some offices of CSOs, interdiction of CSO leaders and freezing of bank accounts. ]

Odongo admits that there is friction between the government and civil society, but said that the government is committed to improving its working relationship with CSOs.

He also said that there is a need to appreciate the role of the CSOs in the country.

He committed to holding periodic meetings with members of the Civil Society to discuss their work.
