By Obed Kithende

The Bishop of South Rwenzori Diocese Rt. Rev. Nason Baluku has highlighted education as a driver for socio-economic development.

The message contained in his New Year preaching at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Kasese town, Bishop Baluku said the country has been hit hard by the devastating effects of the Covid19 lockdown which also saw about 1.5 million learners locked out of school.

Now, the man of God says as schools resume teaching on January 10, parents should endeavour to ensure that their school going children return to school.

He cautions parents against delaying to provide scholastic materials especially to the girl-child, adding that it is only through education that families can guarantee sustainable development.

The Church Minister also implored school owners and head teachers to embrace all the measures put in place by the Ministry of Health to curtail the further spread of Covid-19.

He said that once all the precautionary measures are properly followed in Schools, the disease can easily be defeated.

The prelate also hinted on the need for Christians to lead by example through faithful service to the community in whatever services they render be it business management or community leadership adding that it offers spiritual nourishment.

Preaching from biblical Book of Luke 13 verses 6-8, he reminded Christians that the lord created them for a purpose and implored them to be ambassadors of the good news of Christ.
