Minister for General Duties in the Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) has asked clerics in Kayunga District to stop wedding couples who do not own homes as a way of forcing them to build their own.

Speaking during a baraza (village meeting) organised by the OPM at Busaana Sub-county headquarters on Wednesday, Prof Tarsis Kabwegyere noted that many couples instead of saving to invest in more useful ventures such as housing, instead spend on lavish weddings.

Prof Kabwegyere implored new couples to invest for the future and build homes. He urged the clergy to preach economic empowerment to get their flock out of poverty.

“Clerics should join government efforts to increase household incomes. In addition to preaching the gospel, they should also teach their flock to initiate income-generating activities,” he said. 

He also advised locals in the district to take advantage of the ferry that connects the district to Kamuli District and the new bridge yet to be constructed on Isimba Dam and start projects such as hotels in Kayunga Town.

The minister, who was irked by reports that many children had abandoned school to do petty business and to mine sand, asked local council chairpersons to ensure government projects in their district are well-implemented.

He said government will hold more baraza, adding that they are a forum through which people can channel their concerns.
