The former vice-president of Kenya, Kalonzo Musyoka, has asked Ugandans to fight corruption in different sectors. He said corruption has led to slow development in different countries of East Africa.

He asked them to think globally, while executing their duties. He said the industry oriented-education at UTAMU has attracted students from different parts of the world.“Think East Africa, Africa, globally,” said Musyoka.

Over 190 students were awarded degrees and diplomas in different disciplines such as Business administration, computer science, information systems and technology, human resource management among others.

The guest of honour Robert Ochieng, the commissioner for higher education in the ministry of education, hailed UTAMU for demonstrating the capacity to impart knowledge and skills to students using advanced technology.

“I must thank UTAMU for training job creators, not job seekers, this university is leading in the country in the use of technology learning,” said Ochieng.Ochieng asked the graduates to always make the university proud through doing quality work in different fields.

The vice-chancellor, Benon Basheka, said UTAMU is leading the revolution of using technology to change the attitudes of students.

“We are very practical, some people think that university graduates are just theoretical which is not the case,” said Basheka.
