Today, during the special prayers for primary seven candidates at St John Paul Mugwanya Complex Nursery and Primary School at Ssaza village in Katwe Butego sub county, Kaggwa asked government and security agencies to investigate these assailants because the moment they mention your name, the chances of you surviving them are minimum.

Kaggwa added that it is his prayer that these murderers turn to God because anytime, they will also die and God will ask them to account for the innocent blood of others that they shed while on Earth.

Kaggwa preached that God gave Moses ten commandments at Mountain Sinai and one of them was not to kill, so anyone who kills should be ready to face God and account for breaking one of his commandments.

Pokino Vicent Mayiga thanked Paul Mugwanya Kagombe the managing director of St. John Paul Mugwanya Complex Nursery and Primary School and asked parents to make sure they take their children to school instead of leaving them in villages and marrying them off.
