In Rwandan politics, it was noted that vision 2050 aims to ensure a high standard of living for all Rwandans. This will take Rwandans from the current substance to the society that everyone wants and is proud to belong to.

 In this year's National Leadership Retreat (UMWIHERERO) of February 16, 2020, leaders from all government institutions, civil society and private sector, among others gathered at Rwanda Defense Force Combat Training Centre in Gabiro. The National Leadership Retreat is organised by the Office of the President together with the Office of the Prime Minister.

This retreat was a good opportunity for all leaders to reflect on the progress made, the challenges encountered and the best way to resolve them in the future.

During this retreat, President Kagame put leaders to task and demand answers on several issues raised.

He blamed private investors who rush to invest in higher learning institutions based on their interests without considering the quality of education.

It is with the aim that the talks show “Urubuga rw'Itangazamakuru” (Club de la Presse) broadcasted in synergy on ten radios from all regions of the country and a Television (TV Isango star) of February 23, 2020 focused on “The quality of education in universities and higher education institutes  toward vision 2050”

  • Does the current quality of education in universities reflect a better future for 2050?

The invitees:

1. Dr Rose MUKANKOMEJE / HEC (Higher Education Council)

2. Professor Viateur NDIKUMANA

3. KUBWIMANA Prudence / Analyst 

Dr Rose MUKANKOMEJE explains that before an institution of higher learning or university is accredited, there are terms and conditions required.

 She said that after having received temporary documents, some Institutions of Higher Learning continue to mess up the system and do not respect the conditions or simply the respective instructions given by the ministry.

She made it clear that currently some university investors are targeting their business profits much more than educational methodology. She added that assessment carried out in 2017 proved that institutions have totally failed to comply with relative requirements including appropriate staff and lack of enough teaching facilities among others.

According to Viateur NDIKUMANA education is an important thing in general in society or in the progression of the development of the country that is why we must all be standing up to plan well, build the educational political system to have strong citizens, defensive intellectuals in all fields even those who will present our country to the outside, because it is remarkable that there is the presence of errors starting in primary schools until in universities.

He argued that the problem is not the number of universities but what they give.

“It’s not about how many universities you have; it’s about what they give you. Most universities don’t qualify to be universities.” He said

The Analyst advised that there could be continuous assessment and strict measures have to be added in scrutinizing the institutions.
