“But blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8.
Against the above bible verse, the Minister designate of Information Communication Technology and National Guidance, Judith Nabakooba Wednesday sought God’s blessings through newly consecrated Masaka Bishop, Serverus Jjumba before she takes over office from Frank Tumwebaze.
This happened during the annual Eucharistic celebration and lighting of Christmas tree organized by the Parliamentary Catholic Chaplaincy.
Nabakooka requested Bishop Jjumba to pray for her and bless her as she gears up for the new office.
Bishop Jjumba, who had been invited to lead the mass obliged to Nabakooba’s request and proceeded by offering a special prayer full of blessings to the Mityana District Woman MP.
Nabakooba, the former Police spokesperson resigned from the Force at the level of Commissioner before pursuing a career in politics in 2016 in which she was elected Mityana district Woman MP.
In his weekend cabinet reshuffle, President Yoweri Museveni appointed Nabakooba Minister of ICT and National Guidance.
In his sermon during the celebrations, Bishop Jjumba asked MPs and Parliament staff to emulate the courage of Uganda martyrs in their legislative undertakings.
“They stood harassment and torture. That is why we have a whole public holiday,” he said.
The Parliamentary Catholic Chaplaincy also contributed Shs4m to assist Masaka diocese in preparations for the 2020 Uganda Martyr’s day celebration.
