DEFENCE state minister Ruth Nankabirwa has enrolled for a Masters degree course at Makerere University.
The minister (right) revealed this while addressing residents of Gayaza sub-county during their belated Womenâ€™s day celebrations recently.
She said the problem of terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and escalating wars required the intervention of professionals in conflict management whom she said were very few.
â€œThis will be a marketable degree because the modern world is in urgent need of professional people to resolve international disagreements without using military force,â€™â€™ Nankabirwa said.
The minister said she had been upset by the wars in Iraq, the Democratic Republic of Congo and northern Uganda, which had inflicted a lot of suffering on people especially the women and children.
She said wars increased poverty.
