  • IMF Warns Uganda’s Interest Payments Could Hit Project Spending

    By BLOOMBERG

    Nation to spend a fifth of revenue on interest payments

    Government says will boost revenue, avoid accumulating arrears
    witter

    Uganda will spend as much as a fifth of government revenue on interest payments in this financial year and the International Monetary Fund warned this could reduce expenditure on human capital and infrastructure projects.

    That’s equivalent to what countries that are close to or in debt distress spend on servicing credit, according to the IMF’s country Resident Representative Clara Mira.

    While the country remains at a low risk of debt distress, “there are vulnerabilities and interest payments are high,” Mira said Tuesday in emailed responses to questions. “There are less resources available to finance the remaining needs.”

    President Yoweri Museveni’s administration is struggling to fund its 2019-20 budget of 40.5 trillion shillings ($11 billion) partly because it will collect less revenue than expected after delays to implement certain tax measures. The government plans to borrow 600 million euros ($665 million) from Standard Bank Group Ltd.’s local unit and Trade & Development Bank to help plug the fiscal gap.

    The assessment that Uganda is at a low risk of debt distress is based on assumptions that its infrastructure investments will start paying off, revenue will improve and planned oil exports begin in 2023, according to Mira. Vulnerabilities include spending pressures and slow economic growth, she said.

    The government “will stabilize expenditure and raise more domestic revenue,” said Keith Muhakanizi, the secretary to the Treasury. The administration will also try and avoid the accumulation of domestic arrears, Muhakanizi said separately on Monday. https://dlvr.it/RL4nSW

  • UGANDA: Advice for new graduates

    In Case You Missed It Congratulations on getting your degree and many thanks to your parents who made this possible.

    As a fellow degree holder, mother, employer and former recruiter, let me give you unsolicited advice but it is not like anyone else is doing it.

    1. Clean up your social media on all platforms. Make your profile reflect a professional image. To this effect, remove inappropriate photos and posts. All remaining posts must be in correct English. Abbreviations are a sign of laziness or illiteracy 

    2. Prepare your CV. Two types of this. The one you are going to use for merit jobs and your Linkedin profile, online job sites. This one must be only one page. You can search on my blog for “CV Sample” and you will find many of these one page CVs. The other type of CV is the garbage they taught you to use in Uganda. The one that tells your life story and can be 4 to 12 pages. Keep this CV for your shithole jobs and carpet interviews. Serious money merit jobs expect a CV of one page for every 10yrs of work experience. I have 30yrs of work experience in some great jobs but my CV is only 1 page.

    3. If you have not yet done so, set up an account on Linkedin. It is the social media platform for professionals and employers. You can look at my profile to guide you on how brief and concise your profile should be. Linkedin, if your profile is properly set up, will send you weekly emails of jobs which match your profile.

    4. If you do not have an email account, please necer talk to me again. Even my dog and cat have email accounts. Go set up yours.

    5. Your email should be set up to match your social media to match your CV. For example, my email is mlnangalama@gmail.com. On all social media platforms, it is either mlnangalama or Martha Leah Nangalama which matches my CV, degree, transcripts and passport.

    Examples of bad things:
    i) Nakabina on Facebook, @Swiri789 on Twitter, MuwalaWaJajja@hotmail.com and the CV has Leah Namutebi. Okay chump, who on earth will take you seriously? This is rubbish.
    ii) Prince Ddungu on Facebook, @Ddungu123 on Twitter is acceptable but for email, he uses DdunguLove@gmail.com. Excuse me, are you a porn star?

    6. Use Google to find online job sites. On these, set up an account (it is always free) and upload your resume (CV). Keep checking these sites daily for new job postings.

    7. Job search is a full time job. You will spend 40hrs a week on this job. These hours should be spent actively looking for jobs on the internet, reading current affairs and reading self improvement material. By self improvement, I mean posts like this and others which give tips on life skills. Improve your English skills of reading and writing. Chances are very high that the well paying job requires fluent English.

    8. Scrutinize job offers you get on Facebook. Many good jobs are advertised on Facebook. However, many scams are also pushed on Facebook. When in doubt, just run a Google search on that company.

    9. Writing a cover letter is very easy. Check my blog for “cover letter sample”.

    10. You will get interviews. Read before you go to any job interview. Even if it is volunteer position. Check my blog for “Job interview tips”.
