The Citizens Economic Empowerment Commission (CEEC) has projected to create 17-thousand jobs in Kasama District by 2020.

CEEC Director General Likando Mukumbuta says the  jobs will come through the skills development and industrialization projects being implemented by the commission in the district.

Mukumbuta said about 16-thousand employment opportunities were expected to be created through the cassava commercialization project while over 800 jobs will be generated once the industrial yard currently under construction was fully operational.

“Four thousands cassava farmers have already been identified in the district and are expected to undergo training to improve their production levels,” said Mukumbuta
