By Thembo Mathias,
The Ordinary of the Diocese of Kasese, Rt. Rev. Francis Aquirinus Kibira Kambale has reechoed his earlier message for a helping hand into fully resettling the eleven survivors of the June 16th ADF attack he believes have dreams to shape their future.
The Bishop sounded unhappy that even when he had intervened into the education needs of the survivors, no religious or political leader has ever turned up to see the 10 boys and a girl despite the fact that so many categories of leaders seemed to have sympathized.
In his homily during holy mass for Kasese-Kampala Community-kkaco held at Loudel House in Nsambya in Kampala on Sunday, Bishop Kibira asked Christians to know what the Mother Church stands for by putting their love in action through help to those in need.
Bishop Kibira who announced that the Church’s friends in Germany had insisted on staying at his residence despite plans to house them in Fort-portal during the official opening of Mt. St. Mary’s hospital on November 18th, said he had got close to the survivors on realizing that he would have no answer if the Vatican asked him, as a leader in the Mother Church in the Diocese of Kasese, to account for the surviving learners.

The Ordinary later revealed that from the beginning, he did not perceive KKACO as a very serious, strong and organized Catholic Church community until they put their worthiness in action, asking the community to keep focused to God’s work.

He also tasked the same community to process development and physical plans that would enable him lobby for funds for the construction of the Church project at the Diocesan plot of land in Nsambya in Kampala.
Mr. John Makombo, the KKACO chairperson announced about eighty million shillings had been collected in cash and pledges that Sunday for the construction of the new Cathedral in Kasese.
According to Mr. Julius Mughuma like Mr. John Kyamakya and Everlyn Mbambu, the Kasese-Kampala Community was a unifying factor that has not only brought them together as people from the Diocese of Kasese but in matters of development too.
They pray that the Bishop’s pastoral program covers them usually for Spiritual nourishment.
The Community’s Chaplain, Fr. Alex Kamanzi had earlier asked Christians to fully involve their children in Church work in preparation for their God’s service in future. END
