Bishop Nason Baluku of South Rwenzori Diocese has raised the need for the community in Kasese district to work not only for home consumption but also for commercial purposes.
The Bishop said that this was the only way to fight against the swelling poverty rate in the district.
The Prelate sounded the challenge yesterday during his pastoral visit to St. Peter’s Bugoye Church of Uganda Parish where he confirmed 190 Christians into the Anglican faith.
He was reacting to a report presented to him by the Parish head of Laity, James Katalikawe Muthulhanda who had indicated that they had established a number of projects that generate income to the church.
The Bishop, who was impressed by the report, hailed the Church leadership for such development projects, appealing to the people not to only work for their stomachs.
He also used the same platform to caution the church departmental heads against amalgamating political issues with church and community activities arguing that the practice might negatively affect the development of both the church and community.
