Meanwhile the MUBS Principal Prof.  Waswa  Balunywa appealed to government to invest more in technical and vocational Institutions to solve the problem of unemployment in the country.

“Today  there  is  a  large  number  of graduates without jobs and the problem is escalating. This is on top of the huge number of unemployed who will never make it to the university. There is of course a problem with our educational system. We have almost 300, 000  people  in  universities  and tertiary institutions while there are only 70,000 in the different technical and
vocational institutions. This is partly the reason why there is massive graduate unemployment. Our educational system allows young people to simply go into programmes without knowing what they are and what the student will do when he or she graduates”.
