The walk was flagged off by the national leader of EOCU Most. Rev. Dr. Kiiza Thomas Sibayirwa at Kyaliwajjala and ended at Mamre prayer centre Namugongo Janda.
The walk marks the numerous activities towards the synod of over 50 bishops from across the globe that will be held on the 5th of November and the consecration of father Jacinto Kibuuka as presiding Bishop for Central and Eastern Uganda on the 11th of November.
After the walk the most. Rev. Kiiza told journalists that they will start with helping mothers and less privileged at Kira Hospital on the 4th of this month then go to Naguru hospital before spreading to the rest of the country.
On the current political tension in the country Most. Rev. Kiiza appealed to Ugandans to remain peaceful and to love one another since peace paves way for development.
On his part the Bishop elect Jacinto Kibuuka condemned the heartless and intolerable acts in the country especially the murders of women hence an appeal to government and president to do whatever is necessary to stop the same.
He added that at this time the country needs to dwell much in prayers.
On the walk, Kibuuka said that their church came for the rejected, needy and poor since God created people out of love which everyone should put into practice thus appealing to people to love one another.
