MITYANA - The Archbishop-elect of the Church of the Province of Uganda, Dr Stephen Samuel Kaziimba Mugalu has asked Christians to always give preferential treatment to children.
He said the future of the Church and the country depended on children, which was why they had to be given proper intellectual and moral formation care saying they were the future of the Church and the country.
"If you take good care of these children, the future of the Church and the country will be blissful. These children will be the future Bishops, legislators and even Presidents! But you must give them good care and examples. If you mistreat them, they will grow without a conscience. So, show them acts of charity and civilization."
