By Alex Byakatonda.
The Bishop of the diocese of Kigezi, the Rt Rev George Bagamuhunda, has called on Christians, to borrow a leaf from the mutual friendship that exists between him and his Kabale diocesan counterpart, the Rt Rev Callist Rubaramira, to embrace cooperation that will eventually help them realize development.
Bishop Bagamuhunda was yesterday speaking in his office, as he welcomed the new Kabale resident district commissioner, Godfrey Nyakahuma, who paid him a courtesy visit. He said that he and Bishop Rubaramira, have cherished a brotherly working relationship, which has helped them to serve their people. He however blamed politicians of trying to divide the populace in political camps based on religion, expressing fear that this, if not stopped could steer conflict.
On the issue of supporting government in its development agenda, Bishop Bagamuhunda, said that as a diocese, they are running several programs, like water and sanitation, health and education, environmental prgrams and potato seed multiplication among others.
The Kabale Resident district commissioner, Godfrey Nyakahuma, called on leaders at all levels in the district to combine efforts in ensuring socio-economic transformation of their people. He said that the church plays a vital role in helping the government to realize the socio-economic transformation of the country, by popularizing government programs.
