Makerere Vice Chancellor, Prof. Barnabus Nawangwe thanked Nyabyeya Forestry College for being engines in the training of foresters and went ahead to thank the college for training Makerere students over the past years.

“I must commend those who have been resilient to keep this place in difficult times. I also commend the Principal Nyabyeya Forest College for the transformations during his two years in office,” Nawangwe was quoted last week.

Prof. Nawangwe decried the declining forest cover in the country over unregulated cutting of trees.

“Government expects a lot from us the educational institutions. The most absurd thing is that someone from government should advise  Makerere what to do. We can do a lot of research and that is extremely important,” Nawangwe said
