Mwanza business college campus to receive infrastructure funding

The government plans to solicit funds to improve infrastructures of the Mwanza campus of the College of Business Education.

Speaking over the weekend, deputy minister for Trade and Industries, Janet Mbene said the government will purchase state of the art teaching tools and construct workers’ houses at Kiseke on the outskirts of Mwanza.

Mbene who was gracing the 49th graduation for the college said the government would raise funds from various sources to put in place a modern library, workers offices, hostels and lecture halls on the 4.2 hectare land acquired by the campus.

Earlier, CBE Board Chairman Prof Mathew Luhanga revealed that the campus management bought the land at 243m/- and plans to construct buildings that will accommodate 10,000 students, a development that will benefit many youth with the increased enrollment.

“We have a dire need to move to Kiseke because we use a lot of money to rent lecture halls at Nyanza Building,” he noted.

“We don't have enough offices for our staff… we therefore ask for government financial support," Luhanga added noting that the campus has only 18 lecturers but needs 40.

Mbene urged the 1,165 graduants to use the lessons learnt to employ themselves and start their own businesses rather than waiting for employment from the government institutions and private companies.

The graduands were awarded certificates and diplomas in Business Management, Procurement and Supplies, Accountancy and Marketing.
