By Sophan Niwamanya

The Kigezi Diocesan Bishop, George Bagamuhunda has implored graduates to be ethical if they are to remain responsible Citizens.

Bagamuhunda was on Friday speaking at the 3rd Rugarama School of nursing and midwifery Graduation Ceremony held at Kigezi Diocesan Convention Site Rugarama Hill Kabale Municipality. 221 students were awarded with certificates in nursing and midwifery. Among them 18 were males while 203 were females.

Bagamuhunda appealed to students while they are entering in the job harvest to go with Christian values being ethical, caring and compassionate and also working hard in the medical profession as it is demanded by many.

 He added that it’s a calling to be health workers and must follow three key ministries of our lord Jesus Christ which are Preaching, Teaching and Healing which is a mandate of the church. He asked the continuing students to strive hard to keep the fire burning.

Hon Manzi Tumwibwine, the Chairperson Board of Planning Diocese of Kigezi who was the guest of honor, called upon the graduates to never give up in life, but rather do everything possible to succeed in life.

 Hellen Kakarisa Kataratambi, the executive secretary Uganda Nurses and Midwives Examination Board (UNMEB) emphasized the need for graduates to love and honor the patients for the big role they played through paying fees.
