UCC Uganda Communications Commission (UCC) has suspended its 2020 internship and graduate industrial training programmes in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Owing to the disruption occasioned by COVID-19, we regret to inform the public that the commission will not be able take on interns this year,” UCC stated in a statement released Saturday May 9.
“A new schedule will be communicated as soon as it is prudent to do so. We regret any inconveniences caused,” the Commission added.
A number of companies across the country, including National Social Security Fund (NSSF) have canceled their internship programs due to COVID-19. The cancellations, which will likely increase in the days and weeks to come, are unsurprising, due to the uncertainty the pandemic has caused.
