RUKUNGIRI-Honorable Maj. Gen. Jim Muhwezi, the Member of Parliament for Rujumbura County and Minister of Security, has praised Abanya Ruhinda ba Rujumbura’s contributions to local development and urged the community to adopt the parish development model in order to lift themselves out of poverty.

Over the weekend, Minister Jim Muhwezi disclosed the information at a fundraising event held at Kashenyi Archdeaconry.

The purpose of the event was to raise funds to finish building the Archdeacon’s residence, which is estimated to be about 109 million.

Speaking to the congregation, Minister Jim Muhwezi advised Christians to work for their homes in order to increase their income rather than spending a lot of time at church.

During the event, Muhwezi addressed the congregation and showed his support by donating 32 million to finish the Archdeacon’s house’s roofing.

The Public Procurement and Disposal of Public Assets Authority’s Executive Director, Canon Benson Turamye, underlined Abanya Ruhinda ba Rujumbura’s dedication to turning Ruhinda Sub-county into a model community inside the Rukungiri district.

Canon Turamye emphasized Abanya Ruhinda ba Rujumbura association’s cooperative efforts in assisting with a range of sub-county development initiatives.

These projects include supporting the building of churches, advancing healthcare services, and advancing education through the building of schools.

Turamye also emphasized the association’s prior donation to the purchase of a car for Kashenyi Archdeaconry, highlighting their continued dedication to joint advancement with other Christian organizations.

Turyamye went on to say that having good residence helps the Archdeacon to preach the gospel and rescue Christians who then go on to work as a family, increase their income, and donate back to the church helps the church grow.
