The Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, Dr. Stephen Kaziimba has asked Ugandans to love and work hard to develop their own facilities and infrastructure instead of admiring the neighboring countries.  

Dr. Kaziimba said that people should love what they own or else they may find themselves lost in other peoples’ developments because they are not helped to understand what belongs to them.  According to the primate, whoever wants good things, must work for them because it belongs to them.

Cue out. For our Uganda...”


Kazimba was on Wednesday speaking at the commissioning of a car park at Namugongo, Kira Municipality in Wakiso District.

The park will be used by pilgrims during this year’s Martyrs Day celebrations and other subsequent visitors to the Uganda Martyrs Anglican Site in Namugongo.

It was developed by the dioceses from Greater Kigezi that organized the Martyrs Day Celebrations in 2018.

The car park located next to the Anglican site sits on 3.5 acres of land offered by Namirembe Diocese. It was initially used as a livestock farm.

Dr. Kaziimba is optimistic that the project will boost religious tourism because the many people from across the world coming to visit Namugongo need secure parking.   

Mbabazi and Dr. Rugunda handed a signed souvenir to Archbishop Kaziimba bearing an artistic impression of the car park and the leisure park.

Mbabazi the co-chair of the greater Kigezi dioceses described the development as a legacy project for Kigezi dioceses for them to have a collective memory of the 2018 martyrs’ day.   He said that the idea resulted from the lack of a parking area for pilgrims who are forced to park far away in Namboole Stadium.

Mbabazi explained that the initiative by Christians of Kigezi is a demonstration that small contributions brought together can lead to development.

Dr. Rugunda who chairs the committee commended Archbishop Kaziimba for his good leadership.   He said that the project is part of the accountability by the greater Kigezi Dioceses after organizing the 2018 Martyrs’ day celebrations and commended the team for the commitment to the development of the church. 

Dr. Rugunda said that they are committed to developing the area to become a major income earner for the church.
