Unemployed Youths Urged to Join Drama

Kabarole District Chairperson Richard Rwabuhinga Richard has advised all talented youths in the districts to embrace drama as a way of fighting the high rate of unemployment.

He said, thumb “Youth unemployment is high in Uganda but this can only be solved if the youth become innovative and engage in music, dance and drama”.

Mr. Rwabuhinga, who doubles as the Secretary for Education and Health, was speaking at the launch of Platform For The Needy (PLANE) Bahemuka Drama Group film titled: “My Fate” at Gardens Restaurant in Fort Portal on Saturday.

The chairman remarked, “One is only poor when he chooses to. This is reflected in the My Fate Video where one family chooses to be in abject poverty and domestic violence while another chooses to be in peaceful environment and prosperity”.

The district chairman commended PLANE Bahemuka for the innovation that supports the vision of Fort Portal realizing the city status. He noted that the drama addresses issues in real life situations like Domestic Violence, HIV/AIDS, corruption, education among others.

The Chief guest Col. Robert Mugabe of Bunyangabu County pledged to partner and work together with PLATFORM for the NEEDY to spread the gospel against Domestic Violence and HIV/AIDS in rural areas.

The Director PLANE Mr. Sam Mugisha revealed that the association formed this drama group to spread the gospel against domestic violence and HIV/AIDS that are rampant in the region. Mugisha says My Fate produced in Runyoro-Rutooro Runyankorre-Rukiga is aimed to take the message to the rural population.
