Bishop Kibuuka also cautioned the new priest against exploiting and stealing from the faithful and stealing church properties since God called them to preach to the world without a price.

“Today’s Ordination is a great sign of Harvest. I caution you against becoming fake priests and turning into exploiters of the faithful and the same message goes to all my fellow religious leaders.” said Bishop Kibuuka.

He added that as EOC church they are gracious thus they adore and bless God for what he has done for them since many thought they were not going to make a year but they keep progressing each day.
