IGG Beti Kamya Urges Church leaders to join battle of fighting corruption

By Elijah Khisa

The inspector general of government [IGG] Beti Kamya has challenged religious leaders in the country to join them in the protracted battle of combating graft which has become a big problem.

Kamya sounded the appeal while officiating at the 2024 Mary Sumner day celebrations under the Mothers Union Namirembe diocese which event was held at Namirembe cathedral with Bishop Moses Banja being main celebrant.

The day is celebrated globally by the over 4 million members of the union in recognition  and appreciation of its  founder by looking into her insights and  perceptiveness in seeing what was needed and recognizing the means by which the need could be met through collective mobilization of communities to participate in activities that promote their well-being.

Kamya used the opportunity to challenge the clergy to join the fight of corruption which once not well curtailed could retard the economic development agenda of the country as the population won’t be in position to get social services such as education, healthcare, economic empowerment and  social justice among other basic needs.

She congratulated the Mothers’ Union movement in the country for effectively reaching this great day and as well as celebrating her founder’s life and charitable activities she rendered during her active life.

Kamya appreciated the great work being done by the union especially extending support to families, advocacy against gender based violence, campaigning against child marriage, orphans care as well as supporting government efforts in building economic empowerment capacity among the women folks to fight poverty.

Bishop of Namirembe diocese Bishop Moses Banja preached messages of peace, security, love one another and encouraged locals to participate in income generating activities as a deliberate strategy of combating the high levels of household poverty.

The president of Mothers Union Roseline Bingi Kawiso commended all stakeholders for having joined them in executing their week long activities that led to the climax of the day through activities such as strategic medical camps which saw hundreds of ill citizens from Kasangati in Wakiso district and Luzira community’s access free medical services.

The other activities included visiting and donating logistical items to the Sanyu babies Home in Namirembe, buying Kabaka’s birthday marathon Kits at Bulange Mengo  as well as carrying out mass media sensitization campaigns  to the public discussing topical issues  such as challenges of unchristian lifestyles,  health, child education, economic empowerment programs  and encouraging locals to embrace the holy teachings of the Bible among others.
