The decision was reached on Saturday by the founding body, the Diocese of North Kigezi following the overwhelming reduction in the student enrollment in the recent past.
The Chairperson of the Makobore High School Board of Governors who doubles as the Bishop North Kigezi Dioecese Rt. Rev. Benon Magezi said the decision was reached due to the alarming decline in numbers of students in the school.
