Embracing Skilling Is The Solution To Unemployment – Museveni

President Museveni has said embracing skilling is going to be the solution to unemployment. He said this through Justine Kasule Lumumba, the minister of General Duties.

This happened as Uganda Business and Technical examinations (UBTEB) marked 10 years of monumental strides since inception in 2011. According to Museveni, the country is in the era of skills.

“I encourage Ugandans to go for training in vocational education and also mobilize others who are still negative about it to also send their children to get productive skills regardless of your level of education and status. This is a generation and era of skills,” he said.

Museveni noted that much as the people of Uganda are better educated today, the country is still grappling with the skills gap.

“The skills gap was a deliberate creation of the colonial education system which we inherited as a country. It seemingly designs to produce clerks and administrators to support the colonial government. This type of education creates people who only want white collar jobs with no skills to enable them to produce goods and services for the market either as employers or as workers,” he said.

For a long time, Museveni has been talking about Skilling especially for the young people. For him it is the easiest an quickest solution to unemployment among the youths.
