Hon Muhammad Nsereko criticizes Uganda’s education system

Kampala city Member of Parliament Hon Muhammad Nsereko has criticized the Education system in the Uganda calling it half baked. He said that this has done a lot in keeping people in poverty.

He made the remarks basing on the recent increment of salaries for the Science teachers. This resulted into a strike by the the Arts teachers on a government payroll that almost prevailed for a month.

Furthermore, other categories of public servants also threatened to lay down their tools as they demanded an increment in salary. It was neither the first group of civil servants protesting against poor pay nor were they the last.

To Nsereko, government will keep on increasing everyone’s salary until it can’t satisfy their demands anymore. Therefore the solution he gave is revamping the education system. This will help to teach people to work for themselves. And yet the current education system even can’t allow them to work beyond Ugandan borders.

“With this half-baked education system, you will end up enhancing everyone’s salary instead of building capacity so that people can fend for themselves beyond borders,” said Nsereko.

The MP further said that Uganda should focusing on creating a non productive economy. It instead should be able to equip them with skills to see them through the high poverty levels.

The East African country is categorized as the country with highest youthful population. Over 80 percent of the Uganda population are youths. However, majority of these are engaged in the informal sector with others jobless.
