Comedian Amooti Omubalanguzi real names Allan Mujuuni is over the moon after his firstborn child graduated today at Nakawa Vocational Training College in Kampala.
The graduand identified as Alvin Cole Mugisha a 20-year-old has graduated with a Certificate In Building Construction at the college.
Everyone was surprised by the fact that Amooti would take his son to a technical college instead of taking him to big international institutions which he defended and said universities waste a lot of time teaching students things that are not important in their lives.
“I am so happy today that my son has graduated, he was the best in his class and also he did something that he loves. I don’t support the idea of children studying so many things that are not important to them, if the child wants to plumb, take him/her to an institution where they will have hands-on rather than going through the long journey of the theory that won’t help them,” Amooti said.
He added that “Ensure you bring out skills in your children that will help them like my son is a music producer, we have seen Bebe Cool’s son playing football, Chameleon’s kids going for swimming competitions which is a very good thing.”
Amooti also advised parents to stop the mentality of thinking that children who come to technical institutions are failures, according to him, those that are in universities are failures because they do more theory work and those in institutions do more practical work that will help when they attain jobs.
