President Yoweri Museveni on Sunday attended the consecration and installation of Johnson Twinomujuni as the 4th Bishop of West Ankole Diocese in Bweranyangi, Bushenyi.
Museveni congratulated the diocese of West Ankole for getting themselves out of chaos that has been prevailing and electing a new bishop from among themselves.
“I was happy to learn that the Christians have united this time and elected a bishop,” he said, while speaking on the ceremony.
Bweranyangi Girls Secondary School where the function happened is familiar territory, he further noted.
In 1965, Museveni says he was offered a temporary teaching job at this school by the head teacher, Ms Hall.
On the development front, Museveni said the government has already identified a contractor to reconstruct the Katunguru-Ishaka road that is in terrible state.
“I thank the archbishop for talking about improving household income.”
He appealed to the church leadership to establish parish based poverty eradication programmes, that can work in tandem with Operation Wealth Creation.
He advised the people of Bushenyi should desist from encroaching on wetlands.
“I have talked to the leaders here so that we find a way of restoring the ones already destroyed but no more encroachment should happen.”
