The Bishop of Fort Portal Diocese, Robert Muhirwa has said that
the government should do more in the fight against corruption.
While leading Mass at Fort Portal Diocese Martyr’s Day
celebrations at Katoosa- Kyenjojo District on Monday, Bishop Muhirwa noted that
a country which doesn’t educate its people on issues of moral and integrity commits
itself to continuous poverty.
Bishop Muhirwa said that huge amounts of money are budgeted for social services
but are embezzled by leaders. He asked the citizens to be alert and not be tempted into
//Cue In Twine kyanga Corruption…
Cue out: …byokujingira kyonka.”//
Cue in: Say No to corruption…
Cue out: …faith dedication and mass.”//
Bishop Muhirwa also observed that there was growing domestic
violence, moral degradation and individualism which have ruined the purpose of the family
He emphasized the need for men to value and love their families as how Christ
loved the church.
//Cue in: Abazaire tukwatnize na abaana…
Cue out: …so twine kwerora.”//
Cue in: Say no to corruption…
Cue out: …faith and dedication.”//
He also challenged government to fight crimes especially robbery,
rape and defilement.
Thousands of pilgrims converge at Katosa every January 27 to remember Adolf
Tibewalirwa also known as Ludigo Mukasa, one of the 22 Catholic and 23
Anglicans who were killed at the hands of Kabaka Mwanga of Buganda between 1885
and 1887, for refusing to denounce their faith.
Adolf Tibewalirwa was a native of Mweri in Katosa, Kyenjojo district.
The Uganda episcopal conference authorized Fort Portal Diocese to
hold an independent martyr’s day celebration.
