Minister of state for primary education, Dr. John Chrysestom Muyingo has encouraged graduates to engage in politics as the country is prepares for the 2016 general elections.

Presiding over the fourth graduation ceremony at Datamine Technical Business School in Kampala, Muyingo said that as citizens of the country, the graduates have to participate in politics in various ways like contesting for different posts, campaigning for candidates and also voting.

"However we must stay united, politics should not divide us because we are all Ugandans, for example I’m from National Resistance Movement (NRM) but I’m associating with Hon. Mathias Mpuuga of the Democratic Party (DP)," Muyingo emphasized.

Muyingo assured the graduates that they chose well to take up technical and business studies adding that their skills are needed on the job market.

He asked the graduates to register and upgrade their studies as soon as possible in order to compete well in the developing global.

He also advised the graduates to get married as soon as they finish school.

"When you marry immediately after school, you will stick to one partner unlike when you are not married," Muyingo added that, marrying at an early age gives one responsibility hence working hard and developing.

"I’m successful because I married at an early age," he added. 

A total of 901 students graduated with certificates or diplomas in technical and business courses like solar production, journalism, business administration and others.
