UGANDANS have been urged to tolerate each other in the quest for peace, reports Ismael Kasooha.

Ethics and integrity state minister Dr. James Nsaba Buturo said: “If we are to have everlasting peace, the need for tolerating each other cannot be over-emphasised.”

He was on Sunday presiding over a fundraising function for the construction of Muhangi Catholic Church in Mugarama sub-county, Kibaale district. Over sh17m was realised in cash and pledges.

Nsaba Buturo said the National Resistance Movement (NRM) Government wanted a country where people could live together despite their religious and tribal differences.

He said avenues had been put in place to help Ugandans cherish peace and tranquillity.

“People living together in peace is the foundation for developing this country.”

Buturo said Uganda is blessed with natural resources like oil, adding that the only government that can make good use of them is the NRM government

Internal affairs state minister Matia Kasaija, who is also the Buyanja county MP, asked the residents to report crime to the relevant authorities instead of taking the law in their hands.

Kasaija thanked the congregation for contributing towards the construction of the church.

Kibaale district chairperson George Namyaka asked the Government to lift the ban on the recruitment of staff in the district, adding that government programmes were stalling due to lack of staff.
