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.

Babirye said the NRM government came up with projects like Youth Livelihood programmes (YLP) so that youths become more productive.

Kajabago-Ka-Rusoke, a lecturer at National Leadership Institute Kyankwazi asked government to put in place a labour college where all workers have to be trained and sensitised on issues to do with labour injustices.

Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed won the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for immersly efforts to end two decades of hostility with longtime enemy Eritrea.

Though Africa’s youngest leader still faces big challenges, he has in under two years in power begun political and economic reforms that promise a better life for many in impoverished Ethiopia and restored ties with Eritrea that had been frozen since a 1998-2000 border war.

“We are proud as a nation,” the prime minister’s office said in a statement, hailing a “collective win for all Ethiopians, and a call to strengthen our resolve in making Ethiopia – the new horizon of hope – a prosperous nation for all.”

It said the prize was meant to recognize “all the stakeholders working for peace and reconciliation in Ethiopia and in the East and Northeast African regions.”

The Nobel Committee’s decision appeared designed to encourage the peace process, echoing the 1994 peace prize shared by Israeli and Palestinian leaders and the 1993 award for moves towards reconciliation in South Africa, said Dan Smith, head of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
