Students at higher education institutions have been encouraged to consider joining the military as a significant way to demonstrate patriotism and serve their country.

Lt. Ronald Ngabirano, an officer from the UPDF (Uganda People’s Defense Forces) based in Mbarara City, emphasized the numerous opportunities that come with a career in the military, especially for young individuals. He also highlighted that students specializing in technical fields have a higher likelihood of joining the engineering brigade of the UPDF. He expressed gratitude to RAP Tech Institute for nurturing Ugandan talents and aspiring to become a university.

These remarks were made by Lt. Ngabirano when he served as the chief guest during the welcoming, farewell, and end-of-year party at RAP Tech Institute of Business and Technology in Nyamisha, Ntungamo Municipality, on a Friday.

Lt. Ngabirano, who is an alumnus of the institute, and his wife commended the director of RAP Tech Institute of Business and Technology, Aijuka Rodgers, for his determination and dedication in producing graduates who excel in various organizations nationwide.

Aijuka Rodgers, the director of RAP Tech Institute of Business and Technology, urged all students to maintain focus and consistency in their pursuit of education to achieve success in life. He expressed his gratitude to both the institute’s staff and students for their cooperation and also thanked the parents who entrusted their children to the institute.

Rodgers disclosed that 18 candidates specializing in the technical section will be completing their studies this month. Human Resource representative, Mugume Danson Kamaanda, advised the students to be patient and maintain professionalism as they embark on careers in construction to gain trust in their work.

Other speakers at the event included Taremwa Ivan, a finalist, and Own Barekye, who represented the incoming students.

    It’s easy to say we join the UPDF service but when the time for recruitment comes they will put their relatives or ask for a connection fee . Everything in Uganda has become a source of income.
