Right Reverend John Baptist Kaggwa, the Bishop of Masaka Catholic Diocese has cautioned leaders against executing their responsibilities with traits of arrogance and selfishness so as to build the values of serenity and sanity among their subjects.

According to Bishop Kaggwa, the country is currently yearning for humble and generous leaders that can help restore the sense of hope among communities. He said this while celebrating a mass marking the 96th anniversary of St Henry's College Kitovu in Masaka district on Saturday.

Using the analogy of the College's Patron Saint; Henry II, a former emperor in Bavaria in Germany, whose was a peace builder during his reign, the Bishop, said there is need for leaders in this generation to embrace the attitude of reconciliation and work for the common good.

Cue out…the common good."//

St Henry College Kitovu is one of the traditional Secondary schools in the country. It was established in 1922 by the White fathers as an education center for boys. It was later handed over to Brothers of Christian Instructions.

Bishop Kaggwa explained that the college was established on the foundation to mold students into responsible citizens that can holistically benefit the country.

//Cue in; "my dear students and teachers….

Cue out;….confidence and trust.''//

Brother Augustine Mugabo, the College Head teacher noted that they are currently constrained with space to provide a conducive learning environment for students.

Mugabo explains that they are looking up to the Old boys to raise at least Shillings 2.5 billion for the construction of a new classroom block to decongest the existing facilities on top of replacing the worn-out asbestos roof. 

He says that they are in urgent need of funds to work on the expansion works ahead of the centenary anniversary celebrations slated for 2022.

The Deputy Chief of Defense Forces; Major General Wilson Mbadi, who represented the Security Minister General Elly Tumwine, an old boy of the college urged the fellow former students to render a hand to the college in solving the underlying challenges.

St Henry's College is currently managed by Masaka Catholic Diocese. It has produced many notable figures in that country who have served in both key position in government and private sectors.
