Veteran Journalist and former Leader of Opposition in Parliament has castigated Joseph Sabiiti, a spokesman of Deputy Speaker Anita Among for pouring cold water on efforts of socialite Bad Black to get an education.
Mr Wafula, one of the respected politicians and media entrepreneurs in Uganda, defended Victoria University for offering Shanitah Namuyimbwa aka Bad Black a scholarship to study Digital marketing and English,along side a motivation deal to play an ambassadorial role.
Mr Sabiiti posted on hi social media undermining Victoria University and ridiculing Bad Black, but the Daily Monitor founder could not have any of it.
“Does the university also offer courses in bad blackism?” Sabiiti whose bragging rights were attained at NBS TV, posted.
Wafula answered, “Joseph, I think this woman too needs and deserves further education like we got. This vulgarization and bad bless is uncalled for”.
In this deal, Bad Black managed to attain scholarships not only for herself but also her children at the elite Kampala Parents School.
Educationists believe Bad Black’s desire for education is an inspiration for the girl children to use their opportunities to acquire education when they are still young. She is also an inspiration for adult learners to use the available chances to study.
Victoria University has this year started a program that bridges secondary and university, for students who don’t qualify to join university.
