Bunyoro sub-region is set to receive a University. This comes after President Yoweri Museveni recently met legislators from the sub region who had for long advocated for the establishment of a public university in the area.
“Bunyoro caucus leaders presented the need for the operationalisation of a public university of Earth and Applied Sciences in the Bunyoro sub-region. Great! It will create opportunities for technological & economic transformation. Let us not have white elephant courses,” Museveni wrote on his twitter handle.
While electing the new leadership for the Bunyoro Parliamentary Caucus, the Prime Minister Robinah Nabbanja, recently promised that she would organize a meeting with the President to iron out the key issues affecting their sub-region.
“The President has okayed the proposal and he has directed that we organize a technical committee to see how best now we can start.
“We had a chance that the Minister of Finance comes from Bunyoro and the President directed the Ministry of Finance to start the process of putting in the budget the money that will help us to kick start this university in the next financial year,” she told journalists.
