Primary education state minister Rosemary Sseninde has lauded the unity among Catholics and Anglicans in Gayaza and the country at large.

She said this while officiating at the installation ceremony of Ven. Herbert Paul Kabanda Nyanzi as the archdeacon of Gayaza at St Andrews's Church of Uganda recently.

"It is disturbing to see Ugandans quarrelling, fighting and even picking machetes to kill each other because of politics. Yes, we belong to different political parties, but we are all Ugandans. So, we can still live in harmony by virtue of our common nationality," she said.
