The administration of Lubiri High School has disputed claims that their students were engaged in immoral sexual behavior in a moving bus, saying the learners were merely practicing co-curricular activities taught at school.

The school’s bus was filmed in the city jam while female students on board twerked on the laps of their male counterparts. Through the transparent windows, a couple of female students can be seen dancing atop their male counterparts, with all parties enjoying the act.
“There is a video circulating on social media involving alleged misconduct of students on Midland High School bus. As Lubiri High School, We apologize to Midland High School where we hired the school bus, and to the public at large for the alleged misconduct. The students on board belong to our school. They had gone for an Agricultural show in Jinja. As Lubiri High school, we take a stand on the actions taken in the video to be just a mere dance of which is part of the school co-curriculum activities” The official statement issued on 12th June 2022 reads.
