Things have changed so much.
We must change Too
Universities in the 60s used to produce 1000 graduates each year and they would get jobs even before finishing.
But now each year we graduate more than 80,000 from over 30 universities and 100 institutes and in the uk its almost doubled in the last century.
Where are those people going? Now days we cant have jobs for even a quarter of these graduates .
The education system only trains one to be a slave to another, Work for someone for a pay cheque and make sure his dreams are achieved ,It doesn’t prepare us for the current competitive world where almost everyone has gone to school
In Africa (Uganda) their still teaching secondary school pupils about the first white man to step foot in Africa, Hence in my opinion they should be teaching them about the Bri-exit and the Dynamics behind it.
Most of the Educated people in Africa are poor not because they are dense but the way they see things just doesn’t apply to the real world.
The lucky ones who get a job earn less than 600k for a salary before tax and other deductions. When the deduction are put in consideration, the net salary comes to around 400k. The net salary then suffers from loan deduction. The land lord then demands for his 300k and monthly shopping takes away 100kleaving one with 0 shillings The taxi will demand for 6k going to and from work and other emergences come in. The whole salary is gone and borrowed money starts working but not for long, Mind you we are talking about a middle class or supposedly middle class the Elites.
Aggregated nutrition data in the Uganda Demographic and Health survey (2011) results, Indicate stunting to affect an estimated at over 13.5% and 32.5% of children in Kampala and wakiso districts, respectively,wasting affects about 5% of children while about 13% of children are under weight. Chronic malnutrition is a manifestation of past histories as regards food intake, diseases prevalence and the general social and economical factors.
AFRICA IS NOT POOR. BUT POORLY MANAGED.
Most of the degree holders are poverty stricken, borrowing money to buy smart phones, nice clothes, shoes, make up. chicken and pizza, cars for show offs.
The biggest excuse for getting paid such low amounts of money and having to sit and work for another person for 30 days is *THE DEGREE * that one possesses and that’s all.
This has made most of the degree holders very poor and will most likely die that way.
A degree holder does not know how to generate money even from the simplest thing unless that money is generated for the employer. He is so dependent on the salary that he can do everything to get a job but will not think of starting a business of his own to employ others not even operate a small take away business where he can make 30k a day.
A degree holder is not trained how to make money from school yet it’s the order of day in the real world.
A degree holder is not prepared to sell second hand clothes but is very happy to be employed by the business owner and is very good at buying expensive clothes.
A degree holder is so eager to get of his country and work in another country than spend time to develop his own country by creating solutions and innovations.
That’s why most African institution are not active enough because these so called degree holders end up blaming the government for lack of jobs even when they were on government bursary for them to have these so called degrees.
so here is a simple advice to all of you degree holders if you want to progress in life, throw away that degree and start thinking better than someone without a degree , Be prepared to get your hands dirty every now and again and work like an ox for your business. * Your innovation, commitment, hard work and patience will finally pay off.
