Bugangaizi East, Kakumiro: While attending Christmas Service at All Saints, Kisiita Archdeaconary, the Bugangaizi East County Member of Parliament Agaba Aisha Black called on the people to exercise love for each other. She said this referring to the Love of God that tantamounted to giving us the Savior Jesus Christ who later died for our sins.
Love is the most precious thing we can be proud of, ‘it feels good when we help each other because in doing that it brings blessings to us’.

She strongly appealed to parents to sit down and talk to their children and iron out some issues if any saying, this is the only time they can have enough time with them.
“Interest yourselves in sitting down your children and engage them on certain issues, by doing that, you will be able to understand some of the things you completely did not know which will help you to have a basis to get involved in sorting their matters as well they will be able to walk in a desired path.” She said.

“Most times, we parents have left all the responsibilities to teachers which is not right at all therefore use this window to see that you have been able to interact well with your children.” She added.
She asked parents to control their excitement in this festive season by spending less putting it in mind that children are going back to school in the next month.
“You must consider that in whatever you do this season, you save for the next term in the new year, don’t go out and be exited and when it’s time for your children to go back to school, you don’t have money.” She appealed.

Hon. Aisha tasked the gathering to be patriotic. She said, there is nothing better to be proud of than being proud of your country. ‘even though there could be some issues that are not going well its not good to blemish your country because it’s your motherland.
“Being the era of social media, some Ugandans have instead of using it to promote our country, they have greatly used it to paint a bad picture of our motherland. My appeal is that we should all love our country for us to develop it to the desired level”. She highlighted.
She gave confidence to the people of Bugangaizi East that ever since they trusted her to represent them, ‘there is some tangible development and looking forward to do more for the development of the area.

In his summon, Archdeacon Rev. Canon Godfrey Buro encouraged congregants that regardless of their unpleasant status as they may call it today, Almighty God can change their calendar like He did for King Solomon, son of a harlot Bashebah, like He did to Queen Esther who came as slaved but won favor of the King.
He also gave an example of himself (Archdeacon). ‘My parents separated when I was 3 years but that did not stop the favor of God to make me the Archdeacon.
