President Yoweri Museveni has advised Makerere university students to turn their energies to business outsourcing other than seeking jobs in the public service.

“I urge you to exploit business process outsourcing for employment opportunities,” he emphasised.

The President was speaking at the closing function of the Security Awareness Week held at Makerere University.


“I’m glad students have now realised that employment is in agricultural industry, services, and ICT more than traditional public service.”


He said that while others were emphasising tribal orientation, his Government on the other hand, was emphasising market blocs like the East African Community and Common Market for East and Southern Africa (COMESA).

“I also urge you look out for employment opportunities in areas like call centres,” he said.

The President also apologised to Makerere University Lecturers for not increasing their wages, saying that infrastructural development was at the time more urgent and priority had to go to that first.

“Initially, I resisted increase in wages for we wanted to work on infrastructure. Indeed, electricity has been extended to several areas including Moyo, Moroto etc.”
