Uganda: Afralti Resolves to Boost IT Knowledge

KAMPALA, UGANDA last week hosted the 45th African Advanced Level Telecommunications Institute (AFRALTI) Governing Council Meeting in Kampala where members pledged to support the institution impart IT skills to individuals.

Mr. Eustace Maboreke, the Director of AFRALTI said that the meeting was prepared to map out a way forward for the 2013/14 budget and approval of the training program because of the dynamic nature of ICT.

"This is a governing council meeting... it is the highest decision making body in the set up of AFRALTI institution. One thing we need to observe is that there is no sector that is changing as quickly as the IT sector. To keep abreast with those changes we need be up to date in terms of human capacity on a daily basis. We need to be at the top of things to ensure that sufficient skills are brought into the market," he said.
