Museveni Congratulates Makerere students upon winning the Huawei ICT continental competition

Huawei ICT Competition is for University and College students to showcase their skills on national, regional, and global stages.

A group of students of Makerere University won the competition which took place in South Africa. Makerere University Vice-Chancellor Professor Barnabas Nawangwe has confirmed the good news.

“Uganda’s flag rises high again as Makerereans win the Huawei continental ICT competition, at a grand finale event held in South Africa. I congratulate the team on this great representation,” Professor Nawangwe wrote on his official Facebook page.

Huawei ICT Competition is for University and College students to showcase their skills on national, regional, and global stages.

The competition aims to drive the development of high-quality ICT talent, select qualified talent for the industry, continuously provide future driving forces and active participants for digital transformation, promote efficient mapping of talent supply and demand, and further contribute to a sustainable talent ecosystem.

Upon learning of the development, Sevo took it to his social media account to congratulate the team of students on the achievement.

He called upon the winners not to sit on the knowledge but should use it to create more jobs in a country battling high numbers of unemployed youth.

“I congratulate the Makerere University students for winning the Huawei ICT Competition for Sub Saharan Africa having beaten 19 Countries & 36 teams. I call upon you to use these skills to innovate and create jobs for yourselves & others & wish you luck in the global competitions. I want to emphasize our commitment to exploring options for revitalizing & strengthening Technical, Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to provide demand-driven skills under the Skilling Uganda program that I launched in 2012 & the TVET Policy approved by Cabinet in 2019.
The National Development Plan III gives priority to skills development & digital transformation is one of the key drivers of effective human capital development. I thank our Chinese friends for this skilling program and look forward to its expansion to include more of our youth” Sevo tweeted.
