LEARNERS IN THIS SCHOOL MAY BE DISPLACED BEGINNING NEXT TERM DUE TO OWNERSHIP WRANGLES
The parents whose children study at Visa Oshwal school should have reasons to be worried because the ownership wrangles of the school continues and this means that the learners may be displaced begging next term.
The ownership wrangles began some years ago. A court order last year December had directed the case to be handled by the land court, however, the community is still pursuing the case demanding that the school be privatized.
The wrangles are between the community and the school management. The school board of management chair wants the government to intervene and prevent the school from being privatized once again.
Visa Oshwal primary school was a private school when it was first established but it was made a public school many years ago. The sponsor of the school who happens to be the Oshwal community wants the school to be converted to private school once again.
As the wrangles continue to soar high between the sponsor and the school board of management, many students risk being displaced coming the beginning of next term. The two parties continue to engage in push and pull.
Earlier on, a case was filled by the Oshwal community in court where the charge made a rulling in favor of the community. The school management appealed and the rulling was overthrown.
On the fresh fight, the school administration was served with a letter or rather a court order on Monday instructing them to vacate from the premises the earliest as they hand over the school back to the community.
Yusuf Mohammed chairman for the school management board of directors has called upon the ministry of education and any other relevant authorities to intervene on the matter and solve the problem so that the school can settle and continue discharging the mandates as it should.
According to Yusuf the sponsor is overstepping it’s mandates by pushing for privatization of the school.
The parents are the worried lot as the wrangles continue to affect the stability of the school which will have a negative impact on the performance of the learners, he said. He also added that trustees who were used to represent the ownership of the land are to blame for not using their mandate correctly.
The school is built on a land that was registered under three trustees from Oshwal community.
