Response to Stabroek Newspaper article '' Food Shortage at Kaituma Secondary Dormitory''

This statement is in response to an article that appeared in the Stabroek Newspaper on November 27th 2018 under the headline ' Food Shortage at Kaituma Secondary Dormitory'.

In the wake of the article, an investigation was launched by the Department of Education Region one and it was found that there was a limited supply of necessary items for the dormitory for the remainder of November.

The investigation revealed that the food shortage issue came about because a supplier was unable to supply the food items within the agreed timeline.

That supplier was contacted and the food supplies were subsequently provided to the school.

With regards to the allegation of mismanagement by a specific staff member, the investigation found that this is misleading and untruthful.

The MoE will like to state categorically that there is no food shortage at any school or school dormitory at this time. The Education Ministry continues to monitor this situation.
