The Uganda Muslim Supreme Council Spokesperson Haji Nsereko Mutumba has called upon institutions of higher learning to introduce Agricultural, irrigation and fish farming courses so that the majority of Ugandans can tap into them and improve their livelihoods.
Haji Nsereko Mutumba said this while meeting the top leadership of Al Mustafa Islamic College at Uganda Muslim supreme council.
Mutumba stressed the need for agricultural based courses saying that such courses will benefit the majority of Ugandans whose livelihood is largely dependent on farming.
He said such courses do not cost huge sums of money yet if mastered by the local people, they can improve their economics welfare.
He also said that with irrigation technology, Ugandans will be able to utilize the existing swamps and rivers especially during drought periods. He said many Ugandans are poverty stricken and going without food because they do not have the technology needed to harness and tame nature.
