WAKISO - There was pomp and fanfare on Saturday at the baptism of Prince David Wasajja's daughter Sarah Mazzi Ndagire at Foyer De Charite chapel known as “Kyoto” Namugongo in Wakiso district on Saturday.
The ceremony was conducted by Msgr Wynand Katende, also the spokesperson of Kampala Archdiocese. Wasajja and Marion Nankya's daughter was born in May 2016.
Wasajja is the younger brother of Buganda king Ronald Muwenda Mutebi II. Nankya is the daughter of late Mathias Nsubuga.
The couple, who wed in 2014, have two children, with the eldest being Prince Edward Mbogo
The function was attended by Nabagereka Sylvia Nagginda.
Holy Mass was conducted by Katende. He was assisted by Fr Vincent Mulumba, the managing director of Marianum press Kisubi, Fr Kizito Kalemera a servicing priest at Kyoto, and Fr Gozanga Goza Ssali of St Paul Parish in Mukono.
Katende said baptism is the sacrament by which a person is initiated into the Christian faith. He said parents are responsible for bringing their child to the sacrament of baptism as soon as possible.
“It is not wrong to baptise people because even the Jesus we follow told his disciples to go to the world and baptize. This is what the church is doing,” he said.
The young princess’s godmother is her aunt Mary Sylvia Kibaya.
