information pills geneva;”> more about geneva;”>While hosting 16 serving and retired bishops from western Uganda together with their wives for a dinner at his residence in Karubeizi village, Kihihi town council in Kanungu district, Mbabazi proposed that church programmes in the country be funded from public coffers as they also contribute to the country’s development.

“I look forward to a day when we, in government plan with you and fund that plan,” Mbabazi said.

Mbabazi also decried corruption rate which he said had the potential to bring down the government saying that government success depends on what the church preaches.

He noted that the church modelled him into the accomplished lawyer and successful government official he is today and said he is confident that the country would be transformed with church support.

“Our system is self-correcting,” he noted, adding: “That means we expect some things to go wrong but they are automatically corrected.”

The retired Bishop of Kinkizi diocese, Emeritus John Ntegyereize thanked the Mbabazi family for their continued contribution to the growth of the church.

The prelates who were led by the Bishop of the Diocese of Kinkizi, Rt Rev. Dan Zoreka thanked the Prime Minister for his leadership as the chairman of the diocese’s Kampala Chapter.
