Youth Unemployment in Uganda – Demands for government action

Capture d’écran 2014-09-08 à 13.30.48With Uganda’s unemployment rate at near 83 percent, the government is being challenged by a group of former students who have formed the National Association of the Unemployed. Their demands are for the government to sponsor and create jobs for Uganda’s large youth population. Uganda has one of the highest rates of unemployment on the African continent. It also has one of the largest populations of people under 30. This combination has created a contentious climate from which the National Association of the Unemployed has emerged. The group is asking the government for widespread reforms to ease unemployment burdens. Demands made by the NOU include the creation of a ministry of unemployment, parliamentary representation, equal opportunity for job candidates and the creation of job centers.
