“Disregard false information about Rukungiri’s general hospital being moved to Kanungu district” Hon. Rutahigwa tells Rukungiri residents


Christians have been advised by Rev. Fr. Dr. Julius Turyatoranwa, the Dean of Nyakibale Deanery and Parish Priest of Christ the King Church Rukungiri, to always give back to God in order to gain more from His kingdom.

During his sermon at the baptism of St. Peter’s Catholic Church Nyakashaka in Kyatooko ward, Eastern Division Rukungiri municipality, Rev. Fr. Julius disclosed this information.

He also discussed fundraising efforts for the building of Eucharist and the expansion of the church.

Speaking to Christians, Fr. Julius disclosed that all riches belongs to God since He bestowed life, the greatest gift of all, and as such, individuals should strive to return the favor by making material, ethical, and spiritual contributions to church initiatives.

Fr. Julius, however, urged all Christians to cultivate the habit of giving to God in order to receive greater blessings from Him, who is the source of everything.

As the chief guest of the function, Rukungiri municipality’s Member of Parliament, Hon. Dr. Elisa Rutahigwa commonly known as Omuturagye, assured the locals that he would honor the pledges he made during his campaign for the general elections of 2021.

“Omuturagye” Hon. Rutahigwa cited his attendance at the fundraising event, where he donated Ugx. 1 million and I million from Minister Jim Muhwezi to the cause, as evidence.
