Primary Leaving Examinations (PLE) were interrupted for close to two hours at Kiwawu Church of Uganda Primary School in Malangala Sub-County, Mityana District after it is suspected, demons attacked some candidates.
30 minutes after candidates had started writing their Mathematics exam, the pupils started to shout on top of their voices and run around the examination room. 10 out of the 85 candidates registered to do exams from the school were affected.
The ensuing chaos prompted the invigilators to call teachers who also sought the intervention of priests from the nearby Kiwawu Parish Church to pray for the victims. It is reported that since the beginning of the term, many of the school’s pupils have been unable to attend lessons complaining of a strange sickness which health workers failed to diagnose, leading to the closure of the school for some days.
Lessons only resumed on October 22 after parents hired traditional healers who told the school administration that he had exorcised the evil spirits. But last week, some pupils mostly in Primary Seven were “attacked” again and a priest from Kiwawu Parish Church tried to pray for them. The prayers ended prematurely as victims started fighting the priests. Source
