The National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) has approved businessman Hamis Kiggundu’s two books to be used by students in secondary schools.
The books are titled ‘Success and Failure based on Reason and Reality’ and ‘Reason as the World Masterpiece’.
Before any book is adopted into the national curriculum, it has to go through evaluation processes by NCDC, which involve reviewing for language, relevance and message, among others.
Most schools have adopted a number of books written by foreigners and, therefore, it is time they adopted books written by Ugandans.
