The Episcopal Vicar Mitala Maria Vicariate Rev. Fr. Denis Kizito has attributed the challenges in Uganda to unbothered citizens who don’t hold their leaders responsible and accountable.
At the celebrations to mark St. Charles Lwanga Ggaba Parish day Fr Kizito said many Ugandans just watch and pay no attention to poor services delivered by the leaders and letter complain for the mess.
He cited poor workman ship in building and construction that have collapsed killing people and loss of property and high mortality due to lack of drugs and health workers yet they are all paid on the tax payers money.
However, Fr Kizito appeals to Christians to embrace the Gospel of Matthew 13:23 which require God’s people to use their knowledge and be accountable to everything in the country.
Meanwhile the Parish Priest Rev. Fr. Charles Lwanga Ssengendo noted abject poverty as the most pressing challenge faced by Christians in the parish for the last 67 years. But community mobilization and self help groups are trying to bridge the gap although they are also strained.
St. Charles Lwanga Ggaba Parish celebrated its day as it commemorated 67th anniversary and commissioned the newly elected parish committee which they think will help in brainstorming for the development of the parish because professionals working with various government and private organisations accepted to take up responsibility in various positions.
