RUKIGA:The Rukiga district security committee is proposing to suspend  Community groups sitting commonly known as Ebimbina and social gatherings during  worshiping hours on Sundays.

The proposal was raised in  a security  meeting held at Rwamucucu Sub county headquarters recently that was  chaired by the Deputy RDC Rukiga district Zadoch  Kamusiime who revealed that they had  realised  that a number of people in the district were preferring the community group sittings and  other gatherings on Sundays  that take place during praying time and dodge  the Church services.

Kamusiime added that they had also discovered that Bars and other happening  places  were opening early on Sundays where some people go instead of going for prayers.

The D/RDC noted that  the failure by the  people to attend Church services where they can be  spiritually nourished  had led to an increase in  crimes in communities.

“People have grown heartless spirits because they don’t normally attend Church services on Sundays. We very well  know that the massage packaged by the Men and Ladies of God on Sundays, brings us closer to God, so missing it remains an issue behind the rampant heartless acts,” said Kamusiime.

Kamusiime revealed that the same meeting resolved that  the Sub county and Town council  chairpersons  in the district should enact bylaws to regulate the time other social  activities can be conducted on Sundays without antagonizing the prayers.

The LC III chairperson Rwamucucu Sub county, Eddy  Mugisha welcomed the security committee’s proposal on the bylaws saying  if enacted, they  can help to reduce  the heartless acts happening   in  the communities currently.

The chairperson  Muhanga Town Council, James Twijukye, said that people no longer fear committing crimes because they don’t frequently hear  the spiritual messages since they are always   in bars and other places during prayer time on  Sundays.

“Many people make Bars and social group meetings as their hiding places and fail to attend Church services to hear God’s Word and it is them who commit  the  crimes in our communities”,  Twijukye said.

Twijukye suggests  that the community group sittings that take place on Sundays   should at least be held  in the  evening to enable  their  Members to first attend  church services.
