RWANDA BROADCASTING AGENCY LIVE AT ULK KIGALI

It is true that when one completes his duties well and serves the public satisfactorily, they end up winning their hearts. Having recently been ranked top private university, Kigali Independent University ULK is now an envy for many. The name ULK is now an acronym for many members of the human family to easily decode. Given this, a lot of people and companies always wish to visit ULK to personally witness the wonders and achievements the university is renowned for. It is in this respect that, RBA, Rwanda Broadcasting Agency, the oldest broadcasting Company in Rwanda, made it to ULK Kigali Campus on 24th January, 2017 to air a radio show live from the premises of this leading private university in Rwanda.

Well-known journalists such as Rutagarama Marcel, Eppa Ndungutse and many others thronged the university premises just to gladden the world at large telling them what ULK is all about. Indeed, they had come with a motion for ULK students to give views with express purpose to inspire the rest of Rwandans especially the youth. The motion of the day goes, “Is job creation possible for university graduates?”

Eight students were selected as panelists to echo their views live on Radio Rwanda while the rest of the audience was given the floor for intervention.

Good to say, the journalists were impressed by the rich and promising ideas given by the students on job creation opportunities and how possible it is to create jobs and manage them towards higher achievements.

Given the floor, Mr. Jean Baptiste Karangwa,  a student in year 3 Finance, pointed out that job creation starts with an idea and then self confidence to turn your idea into something tangible by braving the risks one is likely to face towards the implementation of his project or business. He backed his statement with an example of a cooperative he personally initiated by starting from a small number of students whereby each member was contributing two hundred francs on a daily basis, and now the cooperative has grown bigger and currently invests in livestock.

Towards the end of the function, the journalists welcomed in their mobile studio, Charly and Nina, a group of artists whose songs are currently receiving massive airplay locally and beyond, entered the hall and this spiced up the show. The duo pleased the audience and proved their professionalism in music industry by singing right from where the event was taking place. A lot of revelers lauded the initiative of RBA to outreach the community especially university students to speak their minds on important topics. But most importantly, the presence of the fast rising musicians was also a move to salute.

Asked whether she thinks education can be balanced with music, Charlotte Rurinda a.k.a Charly, former ULK graduate, said that it is a tall order to balance both. She advised those wishing to venture into music to first of all be done with their studies and embark on music thereafter.

All is well that ends well. “Face to face”, a song by Charly&Nina put an end to the function.
