The Special Presidential Advisor on Special Operations, Gen Muhoozi Kainerugaba on Sunday took time off to be in the house of God, saying his prayers at Mbale City’s St. Andrews Cathedral.
At the church, Gen Muhoozi who had spent a larger part of Saturday in Sebei where he was greeted by a mammoth crowd, contributed shs20m towards church projects.
The Gen always tweets about his love for Jesus Christ.
In Sebei, he urged locals to champion environmental conservation in order to fully harness natural resources in the area.
Gen. Kainerugaba said that while “conserving the environment jealously”, they should also take “full advantage of government wealth creation programmes such as in agriculture and tourism to support themselves and their families.”
He pointed out some of the resourceful sectors in the region that are yet to be fully exploited. “Finally, and perhaps even most importantly, I want to point out that Kapchorwa and Ssebei region is one of immense potential, which if exploited correctly could herald the historical transformation and growth of our people starting here, and eventually to the rest of the country. I know that you produce the best wheat, best Irish potatoes, onions, and other crops,” the General said on Saturday while speaking to masses that had gathered at Boma Grounds in Kapchorwa for a function that included a tree planting exercise.
“But for you to continue reaping from Mother Earth, we must take seriously conserving what God blessed us with – the environment. We must avoid eroding the terrain which can have catastrophic consequences like we have witnessed in other areas. We can plant more trees, avoid polluting the environment with waste, keep our water sources clean, and engage in modern agricultural practices.”
