Do you know Uganda has a lot of people with Doctorates in Economics but unfortunately cannot solve the country’s economic puzzle?

A Ugandan PhD candidate in Economics at a South African University has released the names of Ugandans with the highest degree in economists, PhDs, but unfortunately, the country has either not used them well or, they are clueless with the troubles facing the country.
