  Cue out…Alleluia alleluia.”//  

Earlier in his homily to the inmates, Msgr Dr Dominic Ssengooba the Masaka Diocesan Vicar General asked the inmates to commit the time in prison to do self-reflection and aim at becoming better citizens when they are set free. 

He reminded the inmates of their responsibility of contributing to the growth of the country.

//Cue in; “thank you for the work… 

Cue out…year 2020.”//
