The Assistant Bishop of All Saints’ Cathedral, Kampala, the Rt Rev Hannington Mutebi has asked parents to be more mindful of their "God-given responsibility" of looking after their children.

"Children are a blessing from the Lord. We are, therefore, expected to give them due holistic care.  We must find time for them and also nurture them."

Bishop Mutebi made the remarks during the All Saints Cathedral family day celebrations, which took place at the Cathedral in Nakasero on Sunday.

The Prelate later condemned the inhuman acts committed against children and called on the Government to protect children from vices such as defilement, child-labour, child-trafficking and ritual murders.

Before the thanksgiving service, the Christians, together with their clergy, staged a "prayer march-past" around Nakasero hill as a gesture of unity and solidarity.
