In Northern Rhodesia, four African graduates took up employment in 1958 and six in 1959. There are at present 39 Africans taking university degree courses.

In Nyasaland, annual figures are not available, but out of a total of 34 African graduates, 30 have taken up employment in the Territory. There are 40 Nyasalanders at present taking degree or professional courses.

I regret that comparable figures for non-African graduates are not immediately available.
