President Museveni guaranteed loans to the best-performing 4,000 students admitted to tertiary institutions.
Making the State of Nation address at the Serena President Museveni said the scheme would benefit the needy students who perform well but face financial constraints to join tertiary institutions.
“We have successfully introduced UPE and USE and free vocational education. The student loan scheme will be introduced in the next budget” he said.
The diligent implementation of these schemes by eliminating all the corruption is necessary. The issue of lunch should be handled in a voluntary manner but I would prefer parents providing lunch to their children.
