Clergy Urged to be Good Shepherds


The Archdeacon Bwongyera South Ankole Diocese Venerable Rev Yokana Nyebikira Mujungu has strongly appealed to all clergy and lay church leaders to be good shepherds so that the hopeless can see light and life in their lives.

Rev. Nyebikira noted that the good shepherd should visit, pray and seek the lost flocks to World treasurers and return them to church.

He made the remarks today at the enthronement of Rev Aggery Mwebesa Ssalongo of St Phillip’s C.O.U. Rwankoora parish Bwongyera Archdeaconry in Kajara county Ntungamo district.

Ven Rev Nyebikira also advised Rev Mwebesa and his wife Harriet the lay reader Rubaare in Kyafoora to be exemplary and cooperate with Christians if they are to serve them as their calling.

He called upon all Christians who have lost their faith to return to church to renew their faith and be loyal to their spiritual leaders.

The enthroned Rev Aggery Mwebesa and his wife Harriet commended the archdeacon for posting them there and Christians for receiving them which has enabled development for flourish.

He highlighted achievements and challenges they have encountered in 6 months since they were posted at St Phillip’s COU Rwankoora parish.

The head of laity at Bwongyera archdeaconry who is also LCV councilor Danson Twinomujuni thanked Rev Mwebesa for the development and asked Christians for teamwork.

The MP Kajara County Hon. Timuzigu Micheal Kamugisha has called upon government and stakeholders to tighten the belts of advocating for the boy-child education alongside girls’ education if the country is to develop at the same pace.

Hon Timuzigu noted that government had put much emphasis on girls only left behind boys which has accelerated wrong elements among the boy children.

According to Hon Timuzigu since the Ugandans have embraced the girl education it is time for them to switch to the education of boys to fill the gap which has been widened for so long.

“Some boy children have resorted drug abuse, petty jobs and dropped from schools because their parents and government ventured into girls only, he said.

He made remarks today as chief guest at St Peters Day service for Kabumba C.O.U in Nyabihoko sub county Kajara County Ntungamo district.

St Peters Day is celebrated every 29th of June every year and Kabumba COU which was named St Peters has every year celebrated the day.

Hon Timuzigu also asked men to mind about their families by changing their behavior in order to have happy families.

He challenged public to be vigilant on security issues and report any suspicious person in their areas to CL1 and authority persons.

The Dean St Peters cathedral Bweranyangi West Ankole Diocese Rev Can Wilson Tumuhairwe appealed to all Christians to use the authority given to them diligently as St Peter did.
The lay reader of St Peters COU Kabumba parish Ivan Tayebwa Gamba Nokora hailed the cooperation among the Christians.
