No justice 17 years on: Kyanguli fire victims cry for justice

28th November, 2018

In 2016, the High Court ordered the Government to pay parents whose sons perished in the Kyanguli Secondary School fire tragedy 41 million shillings, an amount that has since accrued interest to 54 million, owing to delay in releasing the amount by the treasury.  The few parents who are still alive are yet to receive the payment as  KTN news has learnt several others have since died. The few remaining have been camping at parliament building trying to exert pressure on the state to release the monies awarded to them as compensation by the court.
