Lubiri High School and Midland High deny their students
On Friday 10th June, a steamy video was released online showing certain high school students playing "Jigi Jigi" in a school bus belonging to Midland High School.
The video which went viral clearly shows girls whining on top of boys who were sitting at the back of the bus. The whining got intense that at some point, it looked like the students were chewing each other.
Up and down, up and down it went as onlookers saw the entire action from outside that bus that was stationary in traffic jam. The students were heading to an agricultural expo in Jinja at the source of the Nile where they would meet up with other schools.

Midland administration on seeing the video clip rushed to verify its authenticity and quickly distanced themselves from the students' bad manners saying that it wasn't their students on board at that time. The headteacher, Mr Kyasa in a statement released to the press said that their school bus had been hired by Lubiri High School.
So this means it was the Lubiri students on board and not otherwise as many of the members of the public had started to think. Mr Kyasa went ahead to display the copy of the receipt of 1 million Ugandan shillings that Lubiri used to hire out their bus for the agricultural expo in Jinja.
Official statement from Midland
Lubiri too denies the saga
After the blame was given to students of Lubiri High, their administration too came out and vehemently denied having hired the Midland school bus on that fateful day.
In a separate statement, they distanced themselves from any involvement in the video clip and further add that they are an institution built on imparting discipline and cultural norms to the young generation. They also added that they strongly condemn such behavior and would take action if it is indeed true that those were their students.
But in a separate investigation by a one Samalie Kisaakye, this situation had Lubiri written all over it. With their school motto reading "We learn by doing", Samalie was not surprised to find ties belonging to Lubiri students lying on the seats of the Midland bus yesterday after it had been used the previous day.
Even the colors of the school uniforms from the windows during the time of recording also agreed with what students from Lubiri were wearing that day in Jinja.
