Don't take election bribes, bishop tells church leaders (Daily Monitor (Uganda))


Bundibugyo. Rwenzori Diocese Bishop Reuben Kisembo has called on church leaders not to accept bribes from candidates in the forthcoming elections.
He made the remarks on Thursday at the commissioning of the Theological Education by Extension for church leaders at Kirumya Parish in Bundibugyo District.
Seventy church leaders were passed out after a training that started in December 2013.

Caution
“As church leaders, you should be non-partisan by not showing whom you are supporting during the upcoming elections period. Don’t also accept to be bought by people to vote them into power to fulfil their selfish interests,” Bishop Kisembo advised.
The commissioned church leaders, according to Mr Duncan Mugume, the manager for Christian commitment and church partnership at World Vision Uganda, will build capacities of the church to respond to community issues in gender, HIV/Aids counselling, maternal, child health and child protection.

Training
“Theological Education by Extension builds capacity of church leaders with church knowledge so that they are able to minister to their congregations in different communities effectively,” Mr Mugume said.
“Without peace, there is nothing much we can achieve. I want to call on graduands to ensure peace in the different communities of Rwenzori region where they will be working,” said Mr Gilbert Kamanga, the director of World Vision Uganda.
