The Vice chancellor, Dr GASHUMBA James gave the students some words of encouragement. He said , “…I assure you that the TVET attendees in some countries like Australia are tycoons. They make a lot of money from what they studied. They own fancy cars and houses etc. so, in some coming years the rich people in this country will be those who will have attended TVET schools because it is all about hand on skills. Study hard, avoid laziness, I hate lazy people.”

He also emphasized that marketing the colleges is one of his core visions. He promised IPRC Kitabi that he is going to polish the way of market this college as it is seen as a unique college in the country for its programs and location.
