It is a parents worst nightmare, loosing or having a child maimed in what is considered as one of the safest places, school, through not an accident but a deliberate act of arson often carried out by students. Yet it happens with startling regularity. The numbers of families who've had their lives altered through these tragedies are steadily growing. Yet the amount of help or intervention from government remains limited to non-existent. From Bombolulu to Kyanguli, from St. Kizito to most recently Tala, the script reads the same, the actors almost identical, and the outcome devastatingly familiar. NTV's Brenda Wanga visited with some of the survivors of these tragedies and tells of their continuing struggle to heal and the apparent cold shoulder from those in authority in our special feature, burnt and forgotten.
