New VETA college to benefit youths in Kibiti  

YOUTHS in Kibiti District are set to benefit from various training to be provided by Vocational Educational Training Authority (VETA) college which is expected to be built from next month at Nyambili village in the district at a cost of 3.5bn/-.

Kibiti District Commissioner Col Joseph Kolombo made the revelations recently when he had a meeting with the residents of Nyambili village aimed at introducing the project to the villagers.

“This is indeed very good news to us the residents of Nyambili and Kibiti in general. Our children will have this important opportunity to get skills through courses which will be provided by this college and apply them to get employment or employ themselves and manage their own lives,”

DC Kolombo went on to say that when completed the college will bring solutions to the majority of youths  not only in the district but also from other parts of the region as well since it will have capacity to receive a large number of students at the same time.

He said, having the college in place is one of the government’s initiatives to enable all youths who had no opportunity to continue with secondary education to be able to get vocational training and apply them to start their own projects.

He then urged the residents of Nyambili village to be ready to give their full support to the project which is about to start soon.

“There are some of the infrastructures which are part of the college including roads, electricity and water infrastructures which are going to pass through your farms. I am appealing to you to give consent for these infrastructures to pass in your farms and enable this project to be completed on time as planned,” he emphasised.

While at the village, Acting District Executive Director (DED) Denis Kitali urged district leaders to make thorough supervision of the project and make sure that it matches with the value of money which has been allocated by the government.
