The VC says only government has the capacity to do so and stands to benefit from the already established progressive and high ranking community university in Western Uganda.

Prof. Kasenene was speaking during MMU 8th graduation ceremony held at the Saaka main campus in Kicwamba Sub County, see Kabarole district on Thursday.

At the event which coincided with the university’s 10th anniversary, students also honored the late Fr. Albert Byaruhanga, one of its founders who perished in a car crash in Mubende along Fort Portal-Kampala road.

The institution opened as a community university in 2005 with only 103 students, but the population has now grown to 1756.

A total of 486 students were yesterday awarded masters degrees, bachelors degrees, diplomas and certificates in different disciplines.

Hon. Adolf Mwesige the local government minister who represented the Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Ruhakana Rugunda as chief guest said government would as requested support MMU’s and look into taking it over as a public university so as to address the institutions current bottlenecks.

He urged both private and public universities in the country to prioritize research that builds public capacity and avoid the danger of cheap courses since government supports programs that are in line with its policies.

“Uganda has emerged as the center for education in East Africa. This is because the government has prioritized and consolidated the education sector from Universal primary education, Universal secondary education to the education scheme for tertiary students,” he said.

The minister encouraged the graduating students to be adoptable to new changes, technologies and the job environment and continue to learn and work efficiently with others.
