SHOULD WE WATCH, PLAY GAMES NOW OR LETOUR KIDS AND GRANDCHILDREN PLAY BY TOMORROW.
BY: DAVID RWEYEMAMU
When someone hear a diploma, degree or masters, particularly those who never been at University or at any college, the picture that come in their minds always are great and serious issues which are very complicated that needs excessive level of thinking.
Something which is true as I used to think when I was in lower levels of education, the opportunity of joining university to any one always is received by jovial and over happiness moment since that level of education is a dream of every student who is serious with studies.
University students are regarded as the people who are basic foundation of changes to wellbeing of any society because of the education they acquire at that higher level of training, on this regard we refer back on those days when Africa was still under colonialism , most of the liberation struggles involved Universities and colleges like University of Dar es Salaam, Makerere, Ibadan and many others since it was whereknowledgeable and elites lovely sons and daughters of Africawere found hence to set a pace for liberation.
Moreover, currently the story is no longer the same and this is due to technological influences that have led the good number of university students to indulge themselves in playing and watching games like fighting, racing, shooter, strategy,adventure, action and sport games.
Among university students it’s not a story to witness room mates and other colleagues playing games more than four hours a day, in week days even the whole day without getting out during weekend something that can make even headlines to those whom their dreams to university lost or those who never been at school , since what they know is that at university levels people do discuss big ideas or read books, newspaper or generate some potential ideas while in classesand free time.
But the story is quite different, though its more painfully tosee university scholars playing games to such extent on a continent land of Africa where our late grandfathers and mothers used such level to liberate the continent, also to sacrifice themselves for better tomorrow of Africa where do we live now.
The question is if our late fathers would spend their time andkept themselves busy on playing games who could chase away colonialism, on this regard university student we are the ones who suppose to keep strategies of escaping from neo colonialism in order to build stronger tomorrow for our children and other generation as well as making Africa greater again as by those days before colonialism
Despite that, playing games is not a sin or law breaking at allbut as youths who are at university level, they should not look for pretexts rather than changing the attitude before it’s too late.
