This was part of the series of year-long activities to mark Golden Jubilee in celebration milestones achieved in the journey.
Dr. James Nkata, Director General, Uganda Management Institute said;
“Tonight, you are hosting us to a special dinner and we have two things to celebrate, golden jubilee and the eve dinner for the graduation. As we celebrate this year, we sit down and audit our success and failure and this day is about our great achievements.”
He further noted;
“We have been at the forefront of developing our country and have ably done. We are proud to produce the majority of Ugandans that are highly placed in the public sector as the sole trainer and become one of the most recognised Institutions in Uganda and beyond. In the near future, we are getting ISO Certified which makes us the first institution in the country with such a status.”
Mr. Francis Xavier Lubanga, Chairman Governing Council said;
“I urge you to put service above self so that we uphold the name of the Institution through integrity and admission of students, and quality service delivery. This will steer up performance accountability and pledge to give full support to management in their stride to achieve ISO certification as well as the bid in exploring Information Communication Technology (ICT) and the votes for this have been passed.”
“We can’t afford to be local and we are marching towards the realisation of being an International institution and the time is now to stop sending public servants to abroad to achieve what is available here as echoed by President Museveni because all the capability, willingness and disposition to attain this is available.”
