Undergraduates in Uganda charged to embrace agriculture

Published

on

The Youth Member of Parliament, Sarah Babirye Kityo Breeze has promised to facilitate youths in the central region to earn a living from agriculture.



Babirye, who was speaking to university students at Kampala International University (KIU) during the National Resistance Movement (NRM) public lecture, said university students often waste time in unproductive activities such as gambling and drug abuse, among other.

“Agricultural produce such as water melons, mushroom and cabbages are some of the easiest to start with because they need less capital,” she said.

Babirye noted that she is an expert in agriculture and that she is ready to share with the youths these skills, because agriculture is the only investment that has ready market in Uganda.

 “Come up with organised groups, I will take you on a two-week retreat, where experts in agriculture will speak to you free of charge,” she added.

Babirye said students always fall prey of opposition leaders who lead them into breaking the law because of their selfish interests.

“Opposition groups are using you to engage in activities, which earn you nothing, and when some of you are imprisoned, they are nowhere to bail you out,” she warned.
