District leaders Asked to Support Higher Institutions of Learning
District leaders have been urged to support higher institutions of learning by linking them to government ministries and departments for relevant services.
This call was made yesterday by Dr. Rev. Fr. Deus Karemire, the Vice chancellor University of Saint Joseph Mbarara during a special visit by the Mbarara district administration team to the University in Nyamitanga, Mbarara municipality.
He said there is need for the district leaders to pattern with higher institutions of learning to help them easily access services from government.
Karemire also asked parents to embrace education of their children to acquire knowledge and skills to be able to sustain themselves and their families in future.
The Mbarara district Chairperson Capt. JB Tumusiime Bamuturaki pledged to offer support to University of Saint Joseph Mbarara as they have been doing to other Universities in the district.
He is optimistic the University is going to provide employment opportunities and generate income to the locals among other benefits to the community.
