A policy analyst who I respect a lot named Kwame Owino once said that our government had a la...

I don't know how to start this note or make the words suitable for everyone to understand. Well the affair and situation at hand makes it porous to understand.

Prostitution as a whole has become a serious draw back in the development of the country; this is because most of the men and women are practicing it instead of taking part in developmental projects. Prostitution is as a result of the following reasons like; pleasure, curiosity, ignorance and so on. Envy has greatly contributed in a way that people engage themselves in prostitution because they want to have the things that other people have. Sensitization can also help reduce the r...

Firstly, you should know that education in Romania is based on a tuition-free system. There are 11 mandatory years...

Everyone is talking about the same thing and that is “youth unemployment”. Youth unemployment has become a common subject such that it has put government under pressure from oppositions.

With an influx of institutions that offer higher education, youths are now able to access tertiary education and acquire skills to do jobs. Now the questi...
