Eria Paul Luzinda, the retired Bishop of Mukono diocese has castigated the political leadership in Uganda for being obsessed with wealth accumulation. He equates the politicians to a child who Selfishly keeps heaping food on their plate that they can never finish. Luzinda made the remarks while officiating at the Golden Jubilee anniversary for Ndejje Senior secondary. The Bishop, wondered why people at his age are competing to accumulate wealth, yet they don’t expect to live another 50 years.

//Cue in: “May I charge…

Cue out: …rid the country o Omulugubbe.”//

Luzinda who began his sermon before the Vice President Edward Kiwanuka Sekandi, the Guest of Honor had arrived was forced to repeat the subject of corruption immediately he arrived.

He decried the high prevalence of corruption in government departments, nepotism, immorality, examination malpractices and crime that have taken over the country. Luzinda who kept stealing glances at the Vice President usually drew murmurs from old students and parents.

Sekandi didn’t make any direct replies to the corruptions allegations made by the bishop against politicians and government officials. He instead commended the school administration for having utilized the resources given to them well. Sekandi urged the school to inculcate discipline, patriotism and good work ethics amongst students for a better Uganda.

Sekandi later pledged 10million shillings towards the construction of a new classroom block. Ndejje SS was started in 1965 to give students in the neighborhood a chance for secondary education today.
