Mbarara Catholic Archbishop advises schools to teach in local languages
The Mbarara Catholic Archdiocese Archbishop, His Grace Rev Fr Lambert Bainomugisha has challenged students, teachers and community members to expound on causes of indiscipline.
Speaking during the function to open and consecrate the Pope John Paul II Chapel at Ntungamo high school in Ntungamo town, Fr Bainomugisha argued that they are simply looking at its surface as violence and noncompliance, ignoring its broad picture which is eroding the nation’s reputation.
He said indiscipline is showed through the way people drive recklessly on the road, how people are impatient, how they talk to others, in church and banks no one is patient to wait for service without looking at the phone, taking photos, recording voices without self-restraint in the public.
Fr Bainomugisha challenged the students to follow four pillars of Faith, skills, hard work and discipline as anchors of their life other than enjoying a luxurious and empty life.
The Prelate said schools need to start teaching students their mother languages to identify with their heritage.
The archbishop also confirmed 81 students of the school and the neighboring Little Angels primary school.
The Ntungamo resident district commissioner, Geoffrey Mucunguzi appreciated the archbishop’s words saying indeed the government needs to listen and implement such demands as they mean well to the heritage of the country.
