Most of the graduates seem to be girls with a number of 121 representing 61% of the total graduates. This means that the rest, 78 are the boy’s representing 39%.
Mr Moses Kaneene, the deputy principal of Uganda Hotel and Tourism Training Institute (UHTTI), congratulated the graduates. He further urged them to maintain a high level of excellence expected of them by the public.
“The public expects a lot from us. We, therefore, strive to give the best to our students and our products have never disappointed us,” Kaneene said.
He however said there is low government funding to the institute which he said hindered service delivery.
“Hospitality training is too expensive in terms of equipment and resource envelope. Just imagine how many chicken you will have to slaughter for the trainee to perfect in chicken preparation,” Kaneene opines.
He also said the ICT facility is lacking in a way since it has only 30 computers which doesn’t fully serve the 800 students there.
Tourism Minister Maj. Tom Butime will preside over the 13th graduation ceremony this year. Several other dignitaries will also attend the ceremony including Tourism ministry officials, ambassadors, and chairperson UHTTI Board of Directors Dr Jane Egau among others.
