The exercise seeking to kick out teachers using forged documents out of the public service started yesterday in Buganda region.

Mr Lukwago said that teachers should possess all the listed requirements to be able to score the 100 per cent mark or at most 90 per cent before they are confirmed.
He stressed that teachers without some crucial documents will be subjected to investigations and if they are found to be having forged documents, they face termination from public service and subjection to others penalties.
