    All certificate, diploma and degree holders who underwent various training courses in agriculture are to be employed by the government, Agriculture, Food Security and Cooperatives minister Prof Jumanne Maghembe told the National Assembly yesterday.
    He allayed fears that some of them would be left out, saying, “Their employment process is underway.”
    The minister was giving an answer to a question posed by special seats lawmaker Conchesta Rwamlaza, who faulted the ministry for not employing over 3,000 finalists at Maruku Agricultural Training Institute despite the fact that the ministry was in dire shortages of extension officers countrywide.
    “Moreover, the ministry is yet to issue them with their certificates,” the lawmaker said.
    Maghembe said in October 2008 the institute registered 112 diploma course students, of whom 105 passed their exams in November, 2010.
    “Another 160 diploma students were admitted in September, 2009, out of whom 155 completed their studies in June, 2011,” he said.
    He said delays in the issuance of the certificates was due to errors which had to be corrected, adding that the certificates would now be handed over to the students on August 30, this year.
    The minister said that in the financial year 2011/12 the ministry would employ 588 new staff of all cadres. It would also employ 5,089 extension officers and 435 cooperative officers who would include those trained at Maruku institute.
    “Their employment is now being processed,” Maghembe said.
