Kayihura Had Become A Problem, Thank You For Arresting Him – Tycoon Basajjabalaba Tells Museveni

Published

on

Renown businessman and one of the founders of Kampala International University (KIU) Hajji Hassan Basajjabalaba has applauded president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni for removing and arresting the former Inspector General of Police (IGP) general Kale Kayihura.

“I thank you for the best decision you took to arrest and remove Kayihura as IGP, God bless you so much because you are so brave, we shall continue praying for you for the good initiative you took because he had become a problem to many Ugandans,” Bassajjabalaba said.

Basajjabalaba said this during KIU’s 18th graduation ceremony at their Kansanga main campus. Bassajjabalaba further thanked president Museveni that since his intervention on the insecurity situation in the country, the massive killings and kidnaps have reduced.

“Many investors had started running away from our country due to the massive killings but at least we are assured that the president has begun with the big fish to protect Ugandans and the country at large,” Bassajjabalaba added.

However, Bassajjabalaba asked government to quicken the process of signing the bilateral agreements as a way of easing trade between Uganda and other countries to boost business and international relations with other countries because he finds a hard time hiring some professionals from abroad due to the rigorous process.

2410 Students Graduate At KIU

At the same graduation ceremony, President Yoweri Museveni, who was the guest of honour cautioned higher institutions of learning to always teach courses that are marketable as a way of helping students find jobs as well as begin their own jobs as soon as they finish university.

The president said that very many institutions and universities teach courses that are irrelevant hence sending half-baked students who can’t compete globally at the job market.

The president said that if Ugandan youths are to compete globally for jobs, universities and parents should encourage students to take up courses that produce job makers rather than job seekers. He later praised Kampala International University for taking a lead in this cause.

2410 students attained masters, degrees, diplomas and certificates from different disciplines. 1395 (57%) graduands were male and 1015 (43%) were female, 22 students obtained First Class degrees.

The vice chancellor Dr. Mouhamad Mpezamihigo appealed to the president to reconsider them regarding the benefits of primary health care that they were giving before taking that initiative back.

He also asked the president to reduce on the taxes and requirements necessary for professionals from outside who come into the country to offer services to Ugandans. He added that they are going to import Cuban experts to train their students because this will help expand the number of professionals in the country as well as get the required doctors in hospitals and other professionals.

We Have The Best Facilities A Medical Student Needs: KIU Refutes Allegations Of Producing Half-Baked Medics

KIU's deputy vice chancellor academic affairs Dr. Annette Kizaabu with Professor George Nesiima

Kampala International University (KIU) has refuted allegations that the government through the ministry of Education and sports sent them letters informing them of an impending investigation into the quality of medical doctors that they produce as one of the dailies reported.

Addressing the media today at the Kansanga based University, the deputy vice chancellor academic affairs Dr. Annette Kizaabu said that they have never received such letters. Kizaabu added that as KIU, they always follow and fulfill all the requirements that are necessary for any student to be admitted in the University on medical studies and therefore recent media allegations were very false.

“We have the best facilities a student may need to be enrolled in a medical school and it’s only Kampala International University that trains medical officers with its own hospital, by the time our students leave, we make sure that they first go through our hospitals. There is therefore no way we can produce half-baked doctors and professionals,” Dr. Annette said.

Professor George Nesiima, the deputy vice chancellor on research added that they have even exceeded the minimum requirements especially on the issue of ratios. He said that the students ratio to lectures is very fine at KIU that’s why the ministry of education applauded them for being better than any other University when they visited their medical school.

However, on the issue of continuous inspection by the ministry, Nesiima said even though some people may think otherwise, for them as KIU, they are fine with it because it’s legal and helps them to improve and creates confidence because it’s the ministry mandate to inspect and pay visits to Universities and higher institutions of learning.

We Won’t Allow Our Schools To Teach Children Sex – Church Leaders Disagree With Janet Museveni

Published

on

The Uganda Joint Christian Council has warned that they are not going to allow any program from the National sexuality Education Network to be taught in their schools as per the ministry of education plan.

During their Annual general meeting held at Pope Paul in Ndeeba, the chairman of the Uganda Joint Christian Council Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga said that they need some things to be changed in the program before it’s implemented. He added that they have wrote to the ministry several times but have not got any reply.

According to the most Rev. Baptist Andama, the church is opposed to this program because the proposed age bracket of 3-9 years, which the program targets, is too young to be exposed to such programs.

“What the government wants to do is equaling to a 0+0=0, which means, if they implement it, they will have done nothing. Some of the programs in this frame work involve (teaching about) homosexuality, which, in our culture is prohibited. These programs should be off because we are not going to allow them in our schools,” Andama warned.

This comes on the heels of a call from the first lady and the minister of education Janet Kataha Museveni to have this program implemented because it will help in the good upbringing of Ugandan children who are now exposed to the culture of the western world because parents no longer have enough time for them and are leaving them under the care of maids and the television.
