KABAROLE-The Bishop of Rwenzori Diocese Reuben Kisembo wants lazy and non-committed civil servants to resign.
In his sermon during Kabarole District Local Government end of financial year thanks giving service on Tuesday, Bishop Kisembo observed that such public servants do a disservice to the people and must give way for committed ones by resigning.
He condemned the rampant corruption among public officers, who he said want to acquire quick wealth thus denying the public services they are entitled to. Bishop Kisembo asked the employees to serve with dignity, warning that those who want to acquire quick wealth won’t last because God is not pleased.
“A good name is more desirable than great riches; to be esteemed is better than silver or gold,” the Bishop emphasized while reading from the book of Proverbs 22:1 in the Bible. He commended the Kabarole district leadership for being Godly by appreciating him for what they have accomplished.
Meanwhile the district Chairman Richard Rwabuhinga said they had to thank God for the many achievements and accomplishments in the just concluded financial year. He said Kabarole and Toro as a whole gained a lot from government, citing mega projects like the construction of Buhinga stadium, granting Mountains of the Moon University a public university status and granting of Fort Portal Tourism City among others.
