KAMPALA - The Kabaka of Buganda Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II has called for the promotion of technical education to enable the youth be self-reliant.
“In today’s competitive world, we need to plan for our communities by identifying and encouraging the youth to study market oriented courses, business and technical studies for self-employed,” Kabaka said.
He counseled that Uganda would make significant development by migrating from the traditional courses to vocational courses which he says will help people get integrated into the job market easily.
Kabaka Mutebi made the remarks on Friday at Buganda Royal Institute of Business and Technical Education in Mengo, Kampala at the Institute’s 7th graduation ceremony.
A total of 799 students were awarded certificates and diplomas in different disciplines in catering, cosmetology, computer science, journalism among other courses.
