HOIMA, UGANDA: Alex Mwesigwa the Kyabigambire Sub-county chairperson has expressed his disappointment over the neglect of the available educational institutions the in Bunyoro Region.
According to Mwesigwa, despite the existence of several tertiary institutions in the region, the Banyoro have not joined these institutions hence leaving the region underdeveloped.
Mwesigwa made the remarks while officiating the 9th graduation at Royal School of Nursing and Midwifery Kyesiga in Hoima city where over 20 students graduated with a certificate in Medical records and Early childhood education respectively.
“Am so much disappointed to hear that among the students who have graduated here, there are a few Banyoro and this will leave our region behind since we are not developing our own institutions”. Said Mwesigwa.
He later warned the graduands to be committed and public servants.
“In this proffession you need to be hard working, committed and visionary in order to attain main objectives of this course”. Mwesigwa added.
Meanwhile, Clemmy Nalumansi the Managing Director of Royal School of Nursing and Midwifery urged graduands to be concerned citizens at their places of work and asked parents so as to reduce on the rampant land wrangles among family members.
“The biggest inheritance a parent can give to his or her child is through education because when you educate your child you reduce pressure on land in that an educated child will not ask you land for agriculture”. Nalumansi said.
She says despite the less school fees charged at the institute, they have registered few students from within the region.
In his summon, Bishop Sam Muhumuza of the revival church based in Bujumbura East Hoima city also urged graduands to be visionary, committed and hard-working, relate with right people and perform with love in order to succeed in their proffession.
