At the 6th National Conference on Communications opened by the Minister of ICT and National Guidance, Hon. Judith Nabakooba, I have urged the Minister and the Executive Director (ED) of Uganda Communications Commission (UCC), Eng. Irene Kaggwa Sewankambo to establish an ICT Research Fund to help improve the quality of ICTs in Uganda. Makerere would be a proud partner in this initiative.
The ED and Minister have welcomed the proposal and I thank them.
