FESTIVE SEASON

KAMPALA – The Rt. Rev. Wilberforce Kityo Luwalira, the bishop of Namirembe Diocese, has preached love and reconciliation.

He said that at a time when Christians are awaiting the birth of Jesus Christ, Ugandans need to rekindle peace amongst each other.

Speaking as the main celebrant at a Christmas Carols service at the Vision Group head office in Kampala on Friday, Luwalira said there has been a dampening negative vibe in the country recently.

But the faithful can turn this around by inspiring a tone and action of reconciliation, he added.

The Vision Group Anglican Choir led the procession with a heartwarming Once in Royal David’s City hymn on a warm mid-morning.
