Mukono. The Anglican Diocesan Youth Secretary for Mukono District, Rev Edward Kironde Balamaze, has cautioned school administrators against organising what he described as “immoral shows” for children saying this is responsible for the increasing moral decay among the youth.
Rev Balamaze was last Sunday addressing parents, teachers and pupils of Jesjonny Junior School in Mukono Municipality, at a function where they launched a musical titled “Omugugu Gwa Fiizi” (the school fees burden)omposed by pupils.
“It is sad to note that today we read and hear about many incidents of defilement, child murders, incest and other forms of child molestation, and forget that all these incidents have a lot to do with imported cultures that are inculcated in our children” he said
The priest aised parents to keep a stern watch on the children during the long holiday because they might be lured to attend immoral shows where they are confronted with a lot of social dangers.
Earlier, a renowned educationist in Mukono, Hajj Issa Ssebunnya aised school managers to start arming children with vocational skills early enough so that by the time they join post-primary education level, they can start and run their own projects.“This is the best way to go in a situation calling for intense action against joblessness. Today, we see many children who grow up with knowledge that cannot help them do something outside classroom education,” he said.
