The Trade, Industry and Cooperatives in charge of Industries, State Minister, David Bahati has asked churches to take a lead in the fight against poverty by engaging the faithful in income generating activities.
Speaking as the chief guest during the ordination of six deacons at St Peter’s Cathedral Rugama, Kabale District, at the weekend, Minister Bahati said since religious leaders command respect from their followers, they should spearhead the anti-poverty campaigns.
The Bishop of Kigezi Diocese, George Bagamuhunda, who presided over the ordination ceremony, called upon the deacons to be exemplary and remain trustworthy in serving the Lord.
After the ordination ceremony, Minister Bahati accompanied by Kabale RDC Godfrey Nyakahuma, acting district health officer Alfred Besigensi, and Kabale chairperson Nelson Nshangabasheija, commissioned the Kakomo Health Centre IV and new buildings at Kakomo Secondary School in Kitumba Sub-county.
