The Bishop of Bunyoro Kitara diocese Nathan Kyamanywa has asked Ugandans to stop political postmortem because it is not good for Uganda.
Kyamanywa said that now that elections for presidential parliamentary and local government are done, citizens need to return to productive work for better livelihoods to develop our country Uganda.
“We are done with elections and it is non-productive to start political postmortem because this is not good at all for our country,” said Kyamanywa.
He said that as Ugandans we have exercised our constitutional right of electing leaders we should return to normal work.
Kyamanywa expressed concern on what is happening in Kasese where lives have been lost over elections and described such incidents as sad and regrettable.
He said that when he watched the footage where men wielding stones and sticks were attacking armed police and soldiers, it shows that Ugandans need God’s mercy.
“Why should a person attack armed personnel over if that person is sane and normal,” said Kyamanywa. The bishop added that now that person has died and survived by 3 children and a widow who has lost more.
He said let issues of politics be handled the courts of law like what the supreme court is doing and the citizens should start producing food for the children and engage in other development work.
Kyamanywa said that it is true that some people voted for NRM, others for Dr. Kizza Besigye while others were for John Patrick Amama Mbabazi but elections are a thing of the past so people should unite move on.
He said differing in politics does not mean that people should breed enmity and hatred.
Bishop Kyamanywa was Wednesday blessing Kabasekende health center built by EMESCO development foundation with support from Land Aids in Bwamiramira Sub County Kibaale district.
He asked the people of Kabasekende to own the facility because it is there to serve them.
Kyamanywa said that it was a good gesture for a staunch Catholic to partner with Church of Uganda to construct such a facility describing it as a new era in development.
He said that diseases such as malaria, typhoid or Dysentery do not segregate that this is catholic or Anglican so there is no need of being discriminative.
Kyamanywa promised to include the health unit on the system of Anglican Church such that when supplies are made in the diocese it also benefits directly.
He asked mothers and whoever gets pregnant to visit health facilities for antenatal for the good of the unborn child and their health.
Samuel Kisembo Araali the resident district commissioner Kibaale asked the people in the district to also monitor the operations of all government facilities for better services.
Kisembo said that the NRM government has created an enabling environment for NGOs and civil society to operate and serve the people of this country.
“As government we have created an enabling environment for the various development partners to thrive and serve Ugandans,” said Kisembo.
Emily Kugonza the executive director EMESCO development foundation, an NGO that constructed the facility said that they are ready to partner with whoever is development minded for the good of this country.
The Germans have constructed a health center in Kibaale district to improve on health service delivery.
The sh240 million health unit was constructed at Kabasekende village in Bwamiramira sub county with support from Lands Aid German through EMESCO development foundation a non-governmental organization based in Kibaale district.
Bwamiramira sub county, with a population of 18, 250, has been without any public health facility not even a private one.
