In the same way Bishop Jacinto Kibuuka urged the parents to own up their responsibilities of taking good care of the children in the holiday so that they don’t catch the deadly virus of Ebola and also not to engage in the acts of immorality.
“Parents must be diligent and prudent by following all the Standard Operating Procedures to make sure children reach home safe from school and also keep them safe at home. Parents must be strict not to let them meander around otherwise they might catch the virus and bring it to the family hence all family may end up dead since Ebola is fatal.
In the same way, parents you can always diligently lead children to churches and mosques so that they can be guided morally, for fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. The sexual abuses must be controlled by parents since no government official or another person will come to control that but we the parents we got to get serious and control this since it’s our responsibility.” Said Bishop Kibuuka
