Despite the governments' implementation of USE there is poor performance in primary leaving examination in Kamwenge subcounty Kamwenge district which can be attributed to poor infrastructure that affects the Universal Primary Education programme. The data was collected from government-aided schools and private owned schools for comparisons. The information was collected from Head teachers, teachers and pupils. The findings revealed that the universal pnmary education programme has significantly made schools facilities like furniture, classrooms, toilets and textbooks inadequate for use in schools, due to the ratio of school enrolment to the facilities available. The education standard set by the education standard agency should be followed by the ministry of education in all schools and addressed by concerned departments at local and national levels. Parents should also be involved in uplifting the schools and pupils learning environment by constructing class rooms and toilets for their children. The government should implement the projects and partner with other organization to provide good facilities programme because it will help and assist the poor, the needy, the orphans and all those who are unable to raise school fees and other school funds like development funds Despite the fact that poor infrastructure has led to poor performance of UPE programme, at least literacy greatly increased compared to the year 1996 and before, when the programme was not yet declared.
