Mukono Diocese Bishop  Rt Rev James Williams Ssebagala has appealed to the government of Uganda to put more emphasis on issues concerning education along lake shores.

"The education system should be considered most around children living along lake shores and also children surrounding this area should be aware of HIV/AIDS because it doesn't segregate, “he said. 

The bishop made the remarks  at  a pastoral visit where he  confirmed  over 40 children and attended a farewell ceremony  by Buvuma Parish Ngogwe  Archdeaconry at St Peters Walwanda Church of  Uganda.

 He thanked Buvuma leaders for working  with the church.

Rev Brian Kiggundu raised  concerns which included; not having permanent structures and most of them conducting their services under trees, helping church ministers for further ministerial studies and expanding the church projects  and many others.

The area  MP Hon Robert Migadde Nduggwa said that people should prepare for their retirement because it's normal.

" I appreciate you my Lord Bishop for the good service you have lent to us during the years more so in Buvuma Islands, your efforts will always be remembered."

Deputy RDC Buvuma Patrick Mubiru ( Wacity) said the bishop has played a big role in bringing the people of Buvuma together and he appealed to other leaders to be exemplary.

" I ask all the ministers to do their part to attract other people to love God more and come closer to him." 

Buvuma LC5 boss,  Adrian Waswa Ddungu asked the bishop for more land where they can construct other schools at the  parish beginning next year and thanked him for supporting the education sector in Buvuma District.

The bishop first visited the site at St Peters Kasimizi Church of Uganda which has been donated by Patrick Sserubiri the proprietor of Buvuma Island Beach Hotel , who asked people to give back to the flock and also to train the children who have got the confirmation in the ministry of God to enable them to have  a good  church tomorrow.
